I am looking to buy/make something which allows me to store my Sea Kayak (Capella 166) upright / vertical in my yard (theres not enough space to lay it down!). Does anyone know of such a product? I cant find anything anywhere!

...depending on how windy it is where you live. I don't think I've ever seen boats stored vertically except inside a barn or warehouse.

Thats the problem - it may have to be free standing only. I could probably fix it in someway to the house wall but not sure if its possible. Its not too windy here just VERY hot! I live in Abu Dhabi, UAE and its blistering heat right now.
Most people I know|

with a storage problem rent a storage unit. If you share the cost and space with others it is not expensive. I doubt there is anything like what you asked about.

Yeah I currently do rent storage space very close to where I live. I am moving house this week to a location 40km away from the warehouse, and very close to the sea so really dont want to have to do an 80KM round trip just to get into the water when its on my doorstep :) I admit I may have to though!

If you attach a basket ball hoop to the wall of your house at the right height, perhaps you could put the nose of the kayak up through it while standing it up.

After reading Peter-CA's comment, I looked up the Capella and it appears to be plastic. It should not sit on its tail in significant heat, you'll wind up with a wiggle-boat.

all P&H Capella models ending in even numbers are plastic.

Thank you all for your great ideas. Ill take them all on board and see what I can do. Yes I think that during summer it would be a very bad idea storing it outside! Maybe I will continue to store it in the warehouse during summer (its too hot to go out anyway!) then fashion something to store it at home when it cools a bit.
