Here's mine -- I turn the boats on the top level deck-down with some pool noodles over the wooden support.
You could increase the width to put two kayaks side by side, or increase the heighth to put two or three kayaks on edge. When I moved, I disassembled it quite easily, and reassembled it at my new location, again, very easily. Someone recently observed that if all of the CLC boats that have been built were placed end to end, they would stretch for more than 45 miles. Some of the storage options I’ve seen use a nylon strap to gently cradle the kayak, since the strap can conform to the contour of the hull. Run a bolt through the outboard hole in one piece, through your “bushing” (consisting of the dowel piece and the PVC) and finally through a 2nd bracket piece.


Once you’ve built your brackets, just build a simple 2×4 frame as shown by the photos. On my two boat rack, I put a board across the top where I’ll put some hooks to hang my life jackets, etc.
If I had to do it over again, I’d make the total width small enough to fit in a pickup between the wheel wells.
JD, I found plenty of straps at Walmart, in the automotive section (towing straps) and the camping section (for carrying gear), but nothing that I liked.
The pipe wrap is an interesting idea, and I use some on the upright supports in case the boat leans against them. Very awesome rack design, this REALLY clears up the floor space in my garage during kayak season.
The bushing makes it so that the strap cradle touches the boat, since the bolt is recessed a bit.
Can you build me a three-tiered one and how much and how much would it cost to ship if you can Thank You looks like a great design!

I’m going to build these brackets in the next few weeks, much more fun than just buying something to store my kayaks!
A couple of coats of decking stain make them look very professional and give a tough finish.
With more than 50 boats stored at the CLC factory in Annapolis, we’ve given a lot of thought to economical storage methods.
