How to Launch a Boat by Yourself

Fishing by yourself is rewarding from a learning and solitude standpoint — you’re able to focus 100% of your attention on figuring out the fish on your own terms. This also means you need to master launching and landing boats by yourself. This quick video walks through several simple steps to a quick and safe boat launch. The particular method shown here uses a watercraft launch cord, but the same method can be applied with pretty much any strong nylon rope or even your winch strap. It’s our hope that this video helps remove any intimidation you may have about launching a boat by yourself.
