The Kayak Launch was invented in January 2013 to help a family member who lived on a tidal waterway to launch their kayak. The launch concept quickly gained popularity among other family members, friends and neighbors. That same year, a prototype was refined, tested and then presented to a Florida-based company specializing in custom boat lifts. The launch was further refined and put into production in February 2013. A patent was issued March 2016.
There are 4 different models, which are designed to launch various sized kayaks, canoes and paddle boards.
