For all of you PA owners, how do you store and transport you PA?

I was just told by hobie that storing and transporting my PA14 on pvc pipes is a bad idea. I've read multiple forums and this is how some people store and transport their yak. I'm not sure which is the proper way? I transported my PA twice just on the back of my truck with no pvc pipes before and my bottom hull was flat on certain areas. I have not seen any flat spots since I've been transporting and storing on pvc pipes.

Any suggestions is greatly appreciated!

On a trailer with pipe/skid supports in the appropriate places as it weighs two tons, give or take 3 pounds. ;-)

Space the pipes the right distance and you won't have any problems.

PVC is the way to go,if the pipes are of adequate size it should support and have enough give that it doesn’t leave any dents.i stored and tranported a 14-12’ and it never had any issues
My biggest worry is that my wife(when I'm dead)will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it

That's pretty much how I store it. I have 2.5 pvc pipes on wrestling mats and the PA sits on it along the skupper lines. I use a 3 inch pvc pipe when transporting it as it clears my truck bed better.

Why would hobie say it's not ok? It seems like a lot of people store and transport the PA this way.

Yes I know, it's a heavy kayak.
