How to Store a Wilderness Tsunami Kayak

How to Store a Wilderness Tsunami Kayak
Wilderness System began producing kayaks in the mid-1980s and today offers a wide range of sit-on-top and sit-in kayaks. The Tsunami is a sit-in touring kayak offered in different models, including the SP, 120, 134 and 140 series. It is necessary to properly store your Wilderness System Tsunami kayak between outings to prevent damage.


Difficulty: Moderately Easy

Things You’ll Need:
  • Dry towels
  • Eye screw
  • Adjustable nylon strap with hooks
Step 1
Remove the Wilderness System Tsunami kayak from the water or from a rack if it has been transported. Position the Tsunami kayak on a surface such as grass where it will not be damaged.
Step 2
Dry the outside of the Tsunami kayak with a clean soft cloth or rag, removing as much water as possible. Move to the inside cockpit area of the Tsunami and continue absorbing any water that may have gotten into the kayak during use.
Step 3
Choose a location against a wall for storing the Wilderness System Tsunami in an upright position. The best position for storage is upright, so the kayak rests on the bow end.
Step 4
Locate a wall stud in the desired storage location and insert the eye screw securely. Position the eye screw in the wall in a position that will be above the cockpit when the boat is stood upright.
Step 5
Attach the hook on one end of an adjustable nylon strap to the eye screw. Place the Tsunami upright against the wall and bring the other end of the strap across the boat. Insert the opposite hook of the adjustable strap into the eye screw. Pull the adjustment end of the strap so the kayak is held securely against the wall.
