Specially designed racking from Pro-Dek Storage Systems has provided an economical, versatile solution for storing a wide variety of canoes and rowing boats, some of which are 60ft long, in a new boathouse at Trentham L
The new boat-house was built to provide a new base for the Trentham Boat and Canoe Clubs, and Pro-Dek worked closely with the clubs to maximise the number of boats of various types that could be stored, while allowing them to be handled safely and without damage. In order to reduce the cost to the clubs, Pro- Dek supplied all the racking in kit form for assembly by club members.
For the rowing club the racking had to make provision for single and double sculls, fours and eights, which are 60ft long, as well as ancillary equipment such as oars.
The boats are expensive, fragile and awkwardly shaped, so it was essential that they could be handled easily in a confined space.
