Looks good! I like your idea of a cart that carries your gear as well. Do the wheels lock?

I just finished building a stand for mine. I kept mine lower to the ground so I never have to remove my plug in cart. I roll it on and roll it off.

Guys, any concern with warping the hull bottom from prolonged storage? Hobies owners manual says not to store this way but I am out of ideas other than re-supporting my garage rafters as I already have two other yaks hanging from them

Jude,

If I may ask...how far apart are the two sets of parallel PVC support tubes?

Thanks!

I just recently made a stand for mine and they were about 13 inches for the PA 14. Just lay two pvc pipes on the ground and rest the PA on top to get your measurements.
