Looking for ideas. Can you send photos of how you are storing your Pro Angler. I am getting a 14. Thanks

Here's how I did my garage storage initially. I ended up buying a second Pro Angler and made a simple base like the one from this old forum posting. I made this rack when I first purchased my 2012 PA. I now store both PAs on the dual jet ski trailer (PVC rails) and the wooden storage racks are no longer used.

Here's how I will be storing my PA. Since I have the luxury of garage space, I decided to just build a rack to hold both the PA and the wife's Revo 11. Since it is taking up floor space in the garage, I decided to use the bottom area to store extra bags of mulch.

The center support is not attached to the 3 inch PVC so it allows the tubes to shift for a perfect fit. I had originally thought about making a storage cart the height of the truck tailgate, so that when I wanted to load/unload the PA from the truck, all I had to do was slide the PA on/off the cart. Then I could just roll the cart up under the Revo 11 or to the truck.

But for now this works fine. Tight lines!

I believe mine were about 11.5 to 12 inches apart. I put the PVC on the wood, set the PA on the PVC and then lined everything up. Then I held the "L" brackets up against the PVC and wood to mark the holes to drill. Not too difficult... :D

Here is mine. The dimensions are 7' long, 2' wide, and 3' tall ( to fit tailgate of my f250). I used full 10' sticks of 2" sch40 pvc for the rails and attached them with l brackets. I had to put the small sections of 2x4s on the cross rails because with out them the rails would sag and the boat would rest on the 2x4s of the frame. There is about 1/4" of clearance on the stern area of the boat from the cross section. The best way to do it is to build the cart, put the PVC on the get the PA onto it. Then you an measure and line everything up and fasten it down.

The cart is the bomb though it takes me like 25 seconds to get the boat in the back of truck now. With the heat we have been having down hear in Florida my garage is like 100+deg everyday and there is no deformation whatsoever. When I get back from fishing just slide it onto the cart and wash it down, the back in the the garage she goes.

Paulyd... that is a sweet rack (never envisioned writing that to another dude)! I have a 14' kayak now and I'm looking to buy a new 2015 PA14 later this year. I'd like to build a 3-bunk setup like you have this summer. Is that a 2015 PA in your middle compartment? Can you please provide the inside height of that space? I don't have the boat yet and I want to make sure I allow enough room. Eyeballing the pic I'd guess about 34"?

Thanks,
Greg
