Storing your canoe or kayak

If you are storing your boat inside you have nothing to worry about. If you are storing it outside there are a number of things you should take into consideration:

  • It should be kept in the shade to reduce UV damage.
  • It should also be kept off the ground to prevent it from freezing in as well as to help keep it dry and prevent rot when melting begins.
  • If you have wooden gunnels on an ABS boat be sure to loosen the screws to prevent cold-cracking.
