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.
