    Video: How To Launch A Personal Water Craft By Yourself



    We’ve all seen. Heck, you might’ve even poked a little fun at the poor soul trying unsuccessfully to launch their personal watercraft by themselves at the ramp. In fact, watching folks make fools out of themselves at launch ramps is considering an entertaining afternoon around Lake Havasu (seriously, people line up alongside the launches just to critique others ability – or lack thereof – when it comes to launching their boat or ski).

    Pretty slick.

    If you are going to use this technique, make sure there are no other boats within range of yours!

    In the mean time, the wind is blowing your ski onto the dock and or other boats.

    I would NOT recommend this method.

    I launch solo frequently, and it's just simpler and safer to back the ski into the water and THEN unhook the strap from the bow hook and either guide the ski over to the dock or hop on and move it.
