ive looked through the forums and some put it flat on the ground with foam and some have craddles for them. i really dont want to have a flat spot so im wondering whats better ? put it on a saw horse that has pool noodles to hold it or lay it down on top of the bubble wrap it came wrapped in from ftu ? or should i just spend the extra time and money and make a cradle with some 2x4 with pool noodles to wrap them ?

I struggled with this issur as well and finally made a dolly with two x pcs with 7 inch square blocks of foam running the width of the kayak and located at the outside ends of the cockpit. The hull has moulded into the foam and it seems well supported. After I went to all this on the dolly with wheels I took another look at eh cd that came with the boat and it clearly says the boat can be stored on its side. When I go to summer place I will have to store it flat under my RV, so will see what happens, it will be shaded and it doesn't get that hot so I think it will be fine.

My dealer states that the PA is made to be stored flat on the ground. there are other ways if you prefer, but there should be no problem with it being stored flat. Unlike other models made to be stored upside down, the PA has a thicker hull and is made to withstand the weight.
