Kayak Lift
Getting in and out of a kayak is tricky enough , but when done from a dock or seawall with fluctuating water levels , it can be downright difficult — even dangerous . Golden Boat Lifts ’ Kayak Launch is a simple and effective solution , and takes the worry out of launching these boats .
Installation is simple . This lift can be mounted on a wide variety of seawall , dock and deck materials , and takes up little space . To use , paddlers simply use the winch to lower the kayak into the water , descend the ladder and lower themselves into the boat . A grab rail on the water side is used to steady oneself and to push off the lift . Upon return , the kayaker simply guides the craft onto the bunks , climbs out and winches the boat up out of the water .
