I'm getting a composite CD caribou. I thought that the fibreglass and gelcoat would be best kept out of the sunlight. It wouldn't seal it up tight, it would breath and I am in snow country, but the clear poly sheeting would let in the light. Thoughts?
The point of the slings for hanging (right side up) is this could be built fast. Basically 3 or 4 2x4 A-frames and a loop hanging under them. No cutting of shapes to nestle snug. Throw a sheet over the top as a tent. It would be up against the hedge to break the wind. There are some yard use issues in my household (nuff said on that, though my wife neither uses a computer nor would she be on a kayak site). I must build something more substantial this summer, but I must get this boat through its first winter first!
As a more charitable note concerning my lovely bride of 24 years... upon turning fifty a month and a half ago she consulted with my paddle buddy and came up with a short list of kayak choices that I could pick from for a present.... in this household this is an incredible luxury and despite the fact that I was slowly building my first kayak (a folder a la Tom Yost... the most generous kayak booster I can imagine) I said o.k. and am awaiting the arrival of this boat. I want protect it until I can rig some high tech solution under the deck.
I don't mean to highjack this discussion to my own ends RossLake06, sounds like I am talking about a pole barn as you call it. How about the U/V, though?
