It would be better if you could finda cooler place to hang it but I don't think you'll have a problem,just make sure to resalt in the morning.I would probably have alot of salt on it and roll it up instead of hanging but thats just me.

70 degrees in the shade is OK.  You do not want any sunshine on the cape.  Do you have electricity in the shed?  I would put a fan blowing on it and it will dry 10 times faster.

 Rolling it up would be worse if its warm out.. yur trapping all the fluid inside the roll as well..


I lay mine on a table made from expanded metal so it breaths, I salt them for 24 hours, shake it off and resalt with fresh salt.  A fan helps ALOT..

A fan will help, only if the humidity is low. Any humidity will head right for that salt.
