I am an elderly lady and have had to put my recreational kayaking on hold for a couple of years. Now I want to get back to it, but I find I have balance problems getting in and out of a kayak - I can only enter and exit by "falling in" and "falling out" - embarrassing and messy, at best. Does anyone make, or have suggestions for making, a bar or hand-hold, to put across the cockpit for easing this process? I have loved kayaking, and really miss it. Will appreciate any suggestions.
