Al Privette, you are a genius! We got one dry spell yesterday, put the YAK-A-LAUNCHER™ together, and set off. I own the water!!! Thank you, thank you.

Thanks Al! I’m happy with it! Smooth assembly, great quality, easy to use. My wife and I were delighted take our maiden voyages in our new kayaks from our new dock, thanks to our new YAK-A-LAUNCHER™. Adam

Al, thanks so much! I am the primary user of this YAK-A-LAUNCHER™, which Steve gave me for my birthday last year, and I absolutely LOVE it. I am 56 years old and have serious back and neck issues, and I get in and out of my kayak with ease using this! I hope the business…

The YAK-A-LAUNCHER™ is a big hit with all, even the younger set is impressed with it. Good work on the design, construction and delivery. Does everything it is supposed to do! Center Harbor docks should stock a couple of them. Thanks again. Lorin


Hi Al, I finally got back to the beach. Yesterday was a perfect day for a kayak ride after golf. I took a long ride, about four miles. I was able to launch and return using your YAK-A-LAUNCHER™ like a pro. It sure makes the process easier. Thanks again for all your help. Gary
