Boundary Waters Quetico Forum :: Gear Forum :: Outdoor Canoe Storage - Cover?
In the past I used a woven poly material (black outer/ silver inner) that was sewn at both ends as a cover for the canoes. Minnesota ll & Spirit ll. Over time the kevlar darkened somewhat but not nearly as much as the uncovered canoes I have seen.
I have used a Danuu canoe cover for several years. Danuu claims that because their cover is breathable that moisture buildup will not discolour the canoe.
I currently own a Quetico 17 in woven red kevlar with epoxy.
If you do not have a garage or closed in storage facility what do others do to protect their canoes?
Several sources have suggested that covering the canoe can result in discolouration due to moisture buildup.
What is the best way to protect the canoe and maintain the exterior of the canoe?
