If you are anything like me you probably have a shiz ton of gear from boating, bikes, skis all crammed into an under sized garage. How you guys storing all this stuff, got any creative ideas?

Good timing for this thread on multiple levels, I just moved into a new house and have gained an entire two car garage just for gear and can't wait to start to get it organized.

I am thinking about doing to ceiling mounted oar storage, anyone try that?

Everything in my shop / garage is on wheels. For gear storage, I like these wire rolling shelves. Sometimes you can find really good prices on them at restaurant supply stores, like half of what Costco wants for them.

When I moved recently, I left all the gear on them and rolled them right up the ramp onto the Uhaul truck.

Great for moving around to clean out behind etc. I have another one with my dry box, cooler, firepan, groover, etc. on.

Garage is a mess but here is some of my solutions. Repurposed some old snow boards to hold skis and oars, a set of shelves my wife is slowly taking over, and a 4ft by 12ft shelf for coolers and what not. Boat and other gear stay rolled in closet. Frames sit outside.

This is what I have been using for oar storage. Just 3/8 eye bolts in ceiling joists with retired cam straps. A half hitch around the eye bolt to keep the straps from slipping. I just loosen the strap and slide the oars out. Simple and cheap.

I went from a 8x8 shed to a garage which was awesome having two boats and enough gear for 10 people but it’s one of my parking places at our spot so I had to maximize space. The top shelves were built to be able to stack two rocket boxes. It’s still a work in progress but having a work bench is also a plus. I wish I had a 4 car garage but this works for us.

I reckon I need a new house.


My 70 year-old mill shack USED to have a tiny garage, but it was remodeled in the '70s and the garage converted to a third "bedroom." That's my gear room. Raft, kayak, SCUBA, etc. There's a "carport" that was an afterthought. Raft on trailer and kayaks live out there; sea kayaks hang from the rafters. Canoes sadly have to live under a shade tree.


Envious of all the gear space, but if I had it, I'd just fill it up with more gear. ER, uh, maybe not; I wouldn't be able to afford any new gear.

Raft storage platform in shop\garage

I hang my two Maravia rafts from the platform in my shop. The upper one is deflated, while the lower is half aired down. My tractor with forks is how I load them. Of course, safety matters, so all work is completed under the watchful eye of my 3 inspectors. If your building isn't tall enough for rafts, a shorter platform could work for gear.
