Grand Rapids-based LACKS Home Products today announced the Shore Tee, a staked support platform for storing and drying kayaks, paddleboards, and canoes. The device is made of lightweight, weather-resistant plastic, and retails for $59.99 per set.
“The invention of the Shore Tee will change the way paddle sport participants care for their boats,” says Scott Stuart, creator of the Shore Tee and lead design engineer for Plastic Plate, a division of LACKS Enterprises.
“As a kayaker myself, I saw the need for a product that would prevent mold and eliminate damage not only at home, but on extended journeys as well.”
The Shore Tee weighs 3.1 pounds, and the only tool necessary is a foot to push it into the ground, making them convenient.
The device is currently being used by expedition and competitive kayaker Traci Lynn Martin, who will attempt to set a world record for the farthest documented non-stop paddling trip by kayak in one year. If she completes the journey, it is believed that Martin will be the first kayaker to paddle all five Great Lakes in a continuous trip.
