I get a lot of press releases sent to me everyday and to be honest the vast majority of them are either not related to what I cover or are such gimmicks, I don't want to give them any press.
One caught my attention this morning and I was about to write it off when I read a little longer only to discover, that they were talking about a really interesting dock/launch system designed specifically for kayaks and canoes.
The EZ Launch for Kayaks and Canoe is a floating dock system/ramp that allows paddlers to easily get in and out of their without falling in the water. The ramp system has large oversize rollers built in which allows you to easily roll yourself out of the water before getting out.
Looks like a really interesting idea particularly for people with disabilities or balance issues.
At the paddling school
where I teach, we have a dock ramp that goes into the water which is great for beginners. At the end of every lesson we have the regular ramp launch competition. It involves going really fast to see how far you can slide up the ramp.
One thing that I would love to see is to mount the EZ Launch ramp on top of a 75 foot high dock. Now that would be fun!More info: ez-dock.com
