Where to store a canoe . . .


The UPS guy delivered a small box containing the parts necessary to hang our canoe up in the garage. Hubby did the research and spent approximately $130 on that small little box. When we saw it we wondered if it was going to be worth it.

What do you think? I say it was so worth it! Hubby tried hanging the canoe without the fancy pulley system you can see located near the wall -- that didn't work. This works! And since Hubby admitted that we're canoe owners because I love them so much, I owe Hubby BIG TIME! (He stayed up past midnight hanging the canoe.)

Looks like we're canoers for life. That's a lot to look forward to!

Here's a photo that I took on Saturday. Annie (the dog) and I stayed on shore, hence we're not in the shot.

Anything that can be hung from the garage ceiling should be hung up! Good storage and recreation choice. :) Glad to see that Safety Man and the crew were wearing life jackets!

What a fun family activity. We will have to go canoeing sometime for sure. Where was that shot taken? I am always afraid Jaws is going to come and attack me. Love the storage idea.

Alison,

We like canoeing at the Benson Marina -- it's close to home. Tony Grove is the all-time best canoe spot, but it's a bit of a drive up the canyon. It would be beautiful at this time of year. (Take a picnic.)
