Default Kayak storage - need help

Just bought a second kayak and my storage has gotten complicated. Both are 12' long. One 30" wide, one 34". I live in a condo with no onsite storage, so I keep them in a nearby storage unit. The new kayak has taken over all the floor space! So I am looking for some sort of rack to store one above the other. Concrete floor, so can't anchor it there. Can't drill into the storage unit walls. Not practical to hang from the overhead. I am resisting a box type rack just because it would be hard to get the bottom one in and out. Any ideas?

is it Ghost 130 or Tarpon 120? I think if you search the name jason kayak you'll found what you're looking for, and I am waiting which kayak you got maybe I could more specifics...

I have a Native Manta Ray 12, 30" wide, and a new Hobie Outback, 12-9 long and 34" wide.

Somebody (maybe you?) suggested Jason Kayak before. when I search I only get Jackson Kayaks.....

Thx.

So here's how it came out. Perfect.... The shelf on top was a late (but great) addition to the design. I didn't realize how beat up the old boat was until I put the new one next to it....

I love the color... Could have had any of them.

We name all our boats. I'm thinking it's needs to be called The Carrot. But I will take suggestions. Also the old boat still needs a name. It is now my grandson's boat. I suggested we name them the The Carrot and The Stick. But he didn't get it, even after I explained it.

You may want to flip the hobie over and store it rails down.. that is how hobie recommends, especially if it gets hot in your storage unit. Keeps you from naming it “Bent Carrot”

^ This...I stored my Revo right-side up and got two big dents where the supports were. Thankfully,sitting it in full sun on a warm day popped them out in a couple hours....But it was a nervous couple hours.

Why is overhead no good for you, overhead door?

Oh I see I am a little bit late to the table. Cripes if there was any biskets and gravy left they'd be all dried up and moldy.
So what was your solution?

See post #4 for a photo. I didn't want to do overhead because it would have been difficult/impossible with the overhead steel beam arrangement.

dahhhh.....great looking unit.
Is there a reason why the middle shelf arms are so long? If they were shorter it would make it easier to access the lower kayak. ???

I just made them the same length. Good point though. I might cut them off. The problem is not getting the lower boat out, but getting the upper one on and off in the tight space. Shorter arms would help that.

Nice, but you should store them upside down, especially in hot weather, to prevent creases in the bottom of the hull.
