IMHO...I've stored my Hobie's on the PVC pipes on my trailers for years, covered and outside.
I haven't found any problems with deforming of the hull and it seems to work for me...
Whats the difference between hull cradles and PVC? I dont really get that. Ive been using a rack I lag bolted into the studs with 3" conduit contouring the bottom of my outback hull. I also Never had a problem with deformation even in extreme heat.

Not certain but I think the concern is that the different plastics can react to one and other. ABS is *probably* a safer bet (That's the black plastic pipe used for plumbing).

Much Thanks!

What an awesome guy Fishon14 is. He drew up plans for a cart, we met up this morning and went off to Home Depot and Harbor Freight and he built exactly what I was thinking of. Had never met him before, and now I look forward to getting on the water with him. Thanks again!

Nice one! Add some plywood to the bottom and now you can add some totes for all the gear you have to store.

I made one of these before and loved it. I still have the wheels. I may have to make another one. This time with the proper storage dimensions to add the totes on the lower shelf.

Now that I have 4 dang kayaks!
