Kayak manufacturers say don’t keep your plastic boat with just the bow and aft supported, which means many kayak trailers aren’t suitable for long-term storage. If you leave your boat resting on just two bars fore and aft, it could lead to a warped kayak. To modify this type of trailer, avert warping and allow your kayak to stay on it between fishing trips, add 3-inch PVC pipe to support most of your kayak’s hull.
Determine how far apart the PVC needs to be so it supports much of the hull, but isn’t so close together that the kayak atop becomes top-heavy and unstable.
Cut your PVC to leave just a couple inches of overhang.
