Storing a kayak outdoors? (Read 1048 times)

I paddle an Epic 18x and have the opportunity to store the boat at a club we belong to on Lake Washington (next to Seattle). This should let me paddle in the morning before work, but I will need to store my boat on an outside rack, exposed to the elements. Does anyone have tips on protecting the boat, both from the sun and from theft?

  for security if there is a secure rack it can be attatched to.

Some kind of cover - be it a fitted boat cover or just a tarp but you want to keep the sun off if it as much as possible.   For security on a rack a cable run through the bailer and around something solid is simple and effective.
