Title: Structure for storing rowing shells

Abstract: A structure to allow an increased number of shells to be stored in a boathouse bay with but a small if any increase in the volume of the boathouse bay. In accordance with one embodiment, shells are stored along both walls of a boathouse bay and on both sides of a movable storage rack vertically mounted to at least one carriage that can move along at least one track beneath the roof of the boathouse. Stored shells are above and/or below each other such that their riggings are interdigitated to conserve space. To remove an interdigitated shell, the movable storage rack can be moved across the boathouse bay to grant access to the shell desired to be used.
