Kayak Storage Systems
Talic Storage & Display Systems For Your
By early 2002, Tim’s weekend job was doing much better than his day job, so he made the decision to leave the advertising world, and start promoting his woodworking business.
The Talic Classic Racks were selling well, but not everyone needs a rack for multiple boats. Tapping into his creative and artistic abilities, he designed a wall-mounted unit for one, two, and three boats. Another great success, but then someone called – they had a wider boat. Could he help them out? Absolutely. The Kayak Tilt was born. Designed to hold a boat on its side, it could accommodate boats of all widths. Talic has been growing every year since – where there is a need, Talic strives to help, whether it’s designing new products, or customizing existing ones.
When the first rack was created, there was no “Talic storage systems”, just a guy with a need for storage in New York. Tim needed a “name” to put in a magazine ad. In honor of his great, great grandfather, Nikolai Talic, a shipbuilder back in the homeland of Croatia, Tim chose Talic for the name of his new business. After all, Tim felt his working with wood and building storage racks for boats was in keeping with family traditions!
A company built out of necessity
Our history started in 1999, and Tim Tucker needed to get his garage ready for winter. This meant his three kayaks had to find their way off the floor to make room for the family car. What he wanted to do was just buy a storage rack, but in 1999 commercially available kayak storage simply did not exist. So, he picked up his tools, and set out to make one. By the end of the weekend, Tim had created a free-standing rack for his three boats – and, in hindsight, a prototype for a Kayak Storage System.
Having been trained and employed as a graphic illustrator, Tim knew how to create advertisements. With the notion that there were probably at least a few people out there that needed a place to store their kayaks, he created an ad to be placed in Sea Kayaker magazine. No sooner was the ad published, an order came in. He quickly made another rack. And then more orders came in.
