  Canoe Shelter
  Posted by: vcmtthws on Mar-15-09 8:10 PM (EST)
 

I have several canoes and kayaks and have several ways to store them. Some are stored on a trailer I've affixed removable square tubing to to the top for a framework and then cover with a motorhome cover. Quick and easy to store and put back into use.

I also have a rack I built in the yard and I bent PVC pipe to make the framework, then I cover the entire thing with a tarp secured with bunjees to minimize wind damage.

You should be able to pick up some used scaffolding and planks. These are very adjustable and sturdy. A few planks on a top section and a tarp should do the trick. Recently discovered some scaffolding will ride quite nicely in the back of a pick-up truck for a truck rack.

I got a hold of some used lumber racks a while back (don't have them anymore), but they made a nice rack for just a few boats...The top section was used to create a shade.

Keep yer paddles wet and your butt dry...Enjoy.
