Q: Can these racks be used outdoors?
A: All of our wooden racks can be used outdoors, but be sure it is either under some type of covering or finished with a good deck seal. Be sure to reapply the sealant each year.
Q: How much weight can my storage system hold?
A: All of the Talic systems can hold boats that are 100 pounds or less. Each boat can be 100 pounds.
Q: The system that I’m interested in holds 1-7 boats. Does that mean each boat can be 100 pounds?
Q: If I take all the boats off my freestanding frame except the top boat, will it tip over?
A: No. The frame is designed to keep all the weight of your boats in the center of the frame’s feet, which means it is very stable.
Q: What will happen if someone accidentally bumps into my freestanding frame while it is loaded with boats?
A: All our frames are deep and wide enough so that it would take much more than a bump to tip any of them over.
Q: Will my boat get scratched or dented?
A: No. The soft webbing protects each of your boats by conforming to its individual shape and dispersing the weight across a large area.
Q: Should I store my boat upside-down or right-side-up?
A: For canoes and kayaks, either way works because the webbing conforms to any shape and the pressure from the boat is dispersed all across that area.
Q: If I don’t like it, can I send it back?
A: Yes. We have a 30-day product money back guarantee.
Q: How does the SlingSet work?
A: There is a semi-rigid stainless steel bridge that holds the loop open while you slide the bow of your boat into it. You can rest the front end of your boat in that loop while you hook the other loop around the stern of your boat.
Q: How far apart do the SlingSets have to be?
A: Generally 6 feet works well. But they do need to be bolted to a stud or similar structure, so be sure to find the studs that come close to that dimension.
