Find advice on all aspects of kayaking and using small boats on big water


After what now seems like a long (short) time my guillimot kayak is now finaly finnished. The wonderfull wood glistening under the epoxy. There is now one small (ish) problem - where to store it.

It was being built at school in the technical department, a good idea if youre still at school and don't have tools etc. On the 23rd of this month i move from near Aberdeen to Glasgow to start University (in Scotland for those of you going eehh). I need somewhere to store the kayak - the garage is too small, the attic inacessible, mum refuses to hang it from the ceiling and that leaves two options. The local sailing club which i'm a member of and i'm going to enquire about or leaving it outside - if this horror happens what are the best options to take. Is a thick poly sheet good enough. Help please.
