  Looks like two choices

Digesting what all of you have written, my conclusion is the SRT needs to be stored out of the weather. Practically speaking, that means inside my house, since I don't have any outbuildings.

I keep my boats in a set of racks under the deck. They are out of the sun, but they still get wet when it rains.

There's some slings in the garage left over from when I was storing the Wontonah (20 ft wood canoe), and I could hang the SRT in those. But, compared to going to the rack and sliding the boat out and onto your shoulders, it is a pain in the neck. It only takes five or ten minutes, but...

Plus I use those slings when I want to take my truck cap off (a whole one time in the last year). But that's the only way I can raise and lower the cap by myself.

I am officially in dither mode on what to do, or "admiring the problem," as a friend likes to say. Seems my choices are find indoor storage I can live with or get rid of the boat.
