Website Format Now Accessible, Too
YouTube Video Link Fixed!



This "personal paddle sport launch" from YAKport has been installed and is assisting boat users to launch independently and with confidence!

See this video to see how it provides a safe and stable cradle for boarding and unloading. Place your paddle sport vessel on it and enjoy a sure footed and stable entry right above water level. Then tug yourself into the water with very little effort. 

Basic instructions are to put a kayak, paddle board or canoe into the "cradle" or "box" with front facing Main Lodge. Get into the boat (with paddles, life jacket, etc.) Hold onto the overhead bar and "scoot" the boat backwards into the water. While it's good to have a little water in the "box", it is not essential for a successful launch. When returning to the dock, reverse instructions using the bar to pull you and your boat out of the water.

What is an Accessible Website?
