What is an adaptive boat or kayak launch?
Many marinas, rowing centers, and parks, are aware of the growing trend of para-rowing and adaptive rowing. They understand the benefits and freedom that rowing offers. Despite this, they have not seen the facilities that make rowing accessible for athletes in wheelchairs or with physical challenges. Many ask, “What is an adaptive kayak boat launch? What does it look like?”
We at BoardSafe have your answers and explain what makes an adaptive rowing center or launch ideal for para-rowers. Board Safe manufacturers rowing products for adaptive boat and kayak launches, as well as aluminum floating docks, piers, gangways and other accessories with ADA features. It is important to note that ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) requirements do not apply to gangways and floating docks, but that BoardSafe developed its adaptive rowing products following ADA accessibility guidelines to best accommodate users.
