A friend and I have been talking about the ridiculous amount of gear we have and/or want, and gear storage. We were batting around the idea of a rafting club that keeps communal gear in a for pay public storage. Member of the club some have some sort of fee structure to pay for the storage and build a gear library for club memeber use. Gear might include rocket boxes, dry boxes, water filtration, dry bags, spare life vests, spare oars, groover vaults and supplies, camp tables and counters etc. Although I imagine it would never include the actual rubber.
Does anyone have any expereince with this kind of set up? Were there contracts? What did the contracts say? What was the fee structure? Was gear loaned first come first serve? Or could you reserve gear for a trip?
Any input is welcome.
