  Looks like two choices
  Posted by: booztalkin on Nov-28-12 12:51 AM (EST)

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.
