Benefits of a Kayak Launch. Living lakeside has been a big dream of yours. Now that it has finally come true, you are up every morning, watching the spectacular views. So, how about bringing out that kayak from your garage and having a go in it? Did you know that kayaking helps you with weight loss, tones your muscles, and reduces stress? Three completely amazing reasons why you should be on the water right now!
So, what’s the hold-up?
Perhaps, you are having trouble launching your kayak?
It’s alright. Not many people can launch a kayak. Even seasoned kayakers have trouble with it. This is why we recommend that you get a kayak launch. In case you don’t know what it is, read our previous blog, “What is a Kayak Launch?”
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits that a kayak launch offers:
Steady and Stable Launch
Splashing and capsizing in the water are part of the kayaking experience. A kayak launch allows you to safely slip onto the water without getting soaked. Plus, the risk of flipping is much less! With an ADA-compliant handrail, you will have the safest access to your kayak.
No Additions Required
There are plenty of kayak launch designs out there, some of which require you to get it professionally installed. Others feature a ladder that allows you to descend and then board the kayak. The most convenient option is one that is just attached to your floating dock. It is level with the dock and all you have to do is walk up to it and sit in your kayak.
Accommodates Any Type of Kayak
One of the best things about a kayak launch is that it fits a kayak of any size. In fact, even if you upgrade your kayak, you will find that with a few adjustments here and there, your watercraft will slide right onto the launch platform easily.
Powered Life Operation
You can also modify your kayak with a lift if there’s too much distance between your dock and the water. All you will have to do is sit in your kayak, press the button and the launch platform will lower you onto the water.
Worried about getting your kayak back onto the dock? The kayak launch has a slight slope that allows you to row your kayak right on the platform and then disembark in style without getting the gear wet.
