EZ Launch - EZ-Dock
 
EZ Launch™ – Kayak and Canoe Station
 
EZ Dock now provides a stable and durable system for boarding and exiting kayaks. Designed to be especially valuable for seniors or anyone that could benefit in assistance for launching or recovering from kayak or canoe activities the system provides a dry and safe platform.

The EZ Launch™ - Kayak and Canoe system is modular and can be configured to match any dock configuration you require. Since it is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, the dock can remain in the water year round since ice has no affect on the dock structure, it simply “pops” to the top as an ice cube tray since it only requires 1.5” of water to float.

The EZ Launch™ is universally accessible to all people of all abilities and is available with two options for special need situations - the Manual EZ Launch™ Transfer Station and the Solar Powered Hydraulic lift (see first video clip).

See the EZ Dock Kayak Rack as well, another exciting accessory which allows you to store up to four kayaks on one rack and the dock system can support any number of kayaks.
 
   
   
   
   
 
EZ Launch™ for Kayaks & Canoes and EZ Launch™ Accessible Transfer System
 

The EZ Launch™ for Kayaks and Canoes was the first port system built specifically for paddlers. It's so simple and safe to use that everyone will find boarding, launching and recovery a breeze. The rollers and guide rails make it easy to “glide” on and off. It can even be configured for universal accessibility that exceeds the requirements of the ADA by adding the Transfer Station accessory.

EZ Launch™ is a floating system that adjusts to changing water levels. It provides ample “foot space” on both sides and in the front to allow for optimum access and stability. Simply put, EZ Launch™ provides unparalleled ease and safe access for all paddlers of all abilities, along with their gear and their vessels, when launching and docking.
