storing cedar strip boat?

I just received cedar strip row boat and it needs some refinishing.

I don't have time to do it until next year and I would like to know the best way to store it until then.

I have been unable to speak to the person at the Canoe Museum in Peterborough as he is away.

I have been told to store it over the ground outside so that it doesn't dry out.

I can store it in an unheated shed with a cement floor.

Just want to know what's best.

The shed is probably your best option.

Up off the floor and supported evenly along its length.

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.
