1 Excellent Kayak and Canoe Ceiling Rack

There is a wrong way to store kayaks and canoes. Hanging a kayak from its loops will bend it out of shape. Sun, rain, ice and snow can damage the finish. The best way to store a canoe or kayak is upside down and indoors. But you don’t want the boat on the floor taking up a massive amount of space.

The best canoe and kayak storage puts the boat safely up by the ceiling. It’s not in your way, but your garage ceiling still protects the boat from damaging weather. You need a heavy-duty rack, securely attached to the ceiling joists with lag bolts.

That describes the Store Your Board Hi-Port ceiling rack.

Install the Hi-Port pole into any garage ceiling joist. It doesn’t matter which way they’re facing because you are installing one pole.

You can adjust the cross bars up and down, which allows you to sandwich the boat between the ceiling and the bars.

The Hi-Port kayak rack is made of heavy-duty steel. It holds 150 lb., or 75 lb. per side. The foam padding protects your boat’s finish.

The Hi-Port is also an excellent ladder rack

The Hi-Port is also a great ladder rack, as long as you have a stepladder to help you get it down. Check out the Store Your Board Hi-Port kayak rack on Amazon.

Why it Works with Awkward Boats and Ladders
The rack height adjusts so you can sandwich the cargo between the lower and upper racks. Each arm extends 25 inches from the center. The length of the ladder or boat can extend past the frame as long as the width sits within the frame (up to 25 inches).
Create an automated ceiliing storage device using a simple motorized winch. Many products dedicted to automating ceiling storage of bikes, ladders and boats are not well engineered. This highly-rated winch is less expensive and safer than some dedicated solutions.
