i too am new to the canoe world and recently bought a new pelican 15.5. my first thought on storing it was to suspend from the ceiling in the garage and using a couple of ratchet straps would be very easy. i saw at pelican's site though to never store it suspended or on saw horses. the right way was on a flat surface. as for warping, mine is ramx fabric, a polyethylene and says a day or two in normal sunshine restores the boat's shape as it has a memory. i'd lay it on a flat surface and look under and see if light is coming through or stand in the center and see if it goes down any.
