I have a new compass with a trailer and the trailer has Yakima cradles on the front with Yakima rollers on the back. I have the kayak in a garage out of the elements sitting on the trailer right side up. Is this ok for winter storage probably 4 months or so. Man I love the new camo compass should have waited a year. Oh well.
Thanks for any advice.

I would flip it upside down like Hobie recommends OR build a rolling storage rack and use 1 1/2" PVC pipe that take the shape of the hull and prevent warping if you want to store it right side up. Thats what I built and never had any warping problems plus I can roll it right to back of truck and just slide it in and out since I have it at same level.
