Default How do you store your yak?

Is it ok to store your yak on a trailer sitting on the carpet runners? I have heard not to store it sitting on it's bottom because it may warp it. How do y'all store your yaks on their bottom, suppended on their side, upside down?

This is what ours are hanging on in the garage. The kayaks sit on their bottoms on them.

I made a rolling cart. I mostly use the yellow yak. The yak's hang on a 2" strap. I can push it to my truck, unhook the front strap and it slides right into the truck. Even add a few extra hooks for storage. Having trouble uploading a pic., they are timing out when I go to upload. I'll try again shortly.

I'm new to kayaks. Does the plastic degrade or discolor if left outside? I was thinking about building something like a sawhorse rack in my backyard as the garage is full. It would not be in direct sun.

sun is bad for everything but plants, so definitely keep in some shade at least.

It would be on the north side of the house, so never direct sun. Thanks.

I'd at least cover it w/ a tarp or something. Also be aware that the summer heat will make the plastic bend easier, so careful the way you store it.
