Storage outside : any suggestion ?

Post by Fredz » Tue Oct 16, 2012 11:38 am


I've finished my Freedom 17 this summer. I have built the entire canoe outside with no problem, except the extra care needed when applying epoxy (bugs, etc).

I have built outside because I don't have any place to do it inside ... and now it's time for winter storage !

Does anyone have any suggestion or tips for outside storage ?

Store it up off the ground, upside down, with a tarp over it but not in contact with the hull. You could use pool noodles to keep the tarp from touching the hull.
It would be better if you could at least build a lean-to.

You can opt for the services of storage in Tingalpa. they are trusted providers of space and cost is reasonable too. they will provide you discount according to the space you occupy. I also experienced their services and found them best in all.
