I have no choice but to store my canoe outside for the next 6 months or so. I just bought a new canoe and brought it home. What are the do's and do not's about storing a canoe out side?
I was going to put some "L" brackets on the side of my shed and store it upside down on those, kind of like sitting on sawhorses. Will that be ok?

I still throw a tarp over them to keep tree sap and bird poop off.
how about a zippered cover|

the ones from Dallas Manufacturing (see Amazon or Sportsman's Guide) are inexpensive and made of a breathable material, not vinyl. Cheap way to keep your boat looking new, clean and critter-free. There's a 16 ft size available that should fit your canoe perfectly.
I would wrap it in a tarp|

To keep the spiders and squirrels out.

Sometimes I have to leave a canoe outside for a while. I cover it with a tarp, but don't let the tarp touch the canoe (built a temporary tarp shelter for it.)
curious about your "L" brackets ....|

is what I use to keep the tarp off the boat and allow for airflow.
