Now that I have bought the Revo 11 and the rack, next thing on the list is how to store.
Right now is on the garage floor, upside down resting on pool noodles.

I have 2 options, ceiling hoist or wall brackets. Which is the best option? Will hanging on the sides affect the hull if I use the wall brackets?

For the ceiling option, I have narrowed it down to:

1. Thule 571 Box Lift. Designed for concrete so I am not sure this is the best option?
2. Harkin Hoister. Looks difficult to install (12 ft ceiling) and many options, which one to get?

For the wall bracket option, I have looked at:

3. Sea 2 Summit Aquasling. Are the straps wide enough?
4. Sea 2 Summit Aquaracks. Any potential hull damage?
5. Talic brackets. Are they worth the price? Isn't the strap too thin?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

I hang mine on wall brackets (on its side).
The wall brackets are padded with foam.
No deformation yet.

Hobie only cautions against having the boat on its side on the ground so all the weight is carried by the center of the side of the boat. With J hooks each hook is supporting half the weight.
