The Docksider gave me exactly what I was looking for and then some. There are two models, one to enter from the water or one to enter your kayak from your dock. In both instances, your kayak is stored on the side of your dock, a handle is released and lowered, your kayak is floated into two lifting straps and then raised up into place by the handle. The engineering that went into the design reduces the weight of the kayak when lifting by up to 60%. To top this off it only requires 3 inches of your dock deck for the clamping mechanism. It can be used for kayaks, canoes or SUPs. I just love this product. It has put me on the water more often than I normally would have. I'm using my back for more paddling now and less lifting.
