Storing Excel 435 in Garden
Hi - I have an Excel 435HD and am wondering how people who don't deflate their SIBs for a season store them? Currently my best bet is:
When the outboard is off - store with the transom wheels down and the nose on a tarp on the ground, keel deflated.
When the outboard is on - store transom wheels down and the nose up on a small plastic table with soft edges... about a third of the boat length in from the bow.
Somehow it feels like it should be off the ground... are their any adverse effects by storing the boat up on the wheels with the weight of the engine?
Or should I take off the wheels, deflate the keel and lay it flat?
I think any bending of the Ali deck would be protected by the rigidness on the tubes...
