Default Sun Damage

I believe most plastics, canoes & kayaks, are still subject to breakdown by by direct sunlight. Winter sun is weaker and I dont know to what extent plastics degrade but its something to consider. Also fittings will be stressed more by expansion & contraction if temp. swings are greater. I have hung such boats from the garage ceiling above vehicles. Done right it makes racking & de-racking quite easy.
