    Deflate and rollup in the garage?

    Achilles is on a trailer, so I leave it inflated with just a little air released from the tubes, flip it and tarp it. Pontoon boats get the same treatment. Priority on the Achilles is to keep floor and transom dry and sound while protecting the tubes.

    I have always hung them either suspended from the ceiling in the garage. Works great if you have the room. It also serves as a safe haven for Christmas gifts for the kids. They haven't thought to look there...yet. Hopefully they don't follow this thread.

    Too bad I already told them your secret!

    What do you guys think about doing this from garages with BCI joists in the ceiling? I've always hung stuff from the ceiling but our new garage uses BCI joists in the ceiling and I've heard it's not good to run bolts into these. Anyone with any experience?

    You could put a 2x4 across the 16/24 inch span with a cable rap around it and going threw the sheet rock with a lope on the end or just put a cable around the BCI. IMO
