I just picked up a Scrambler 11’ sit on top. I have launch my Hobie 16’ catamaran in low to moderate surf many times, and thought it would be a breeze to launch the Scrambler.
I am humbled, not so ! I have read the info about timing etc. unless I am missing something it’s simply a matter of waiting for a lull and paddling through. As an alternative,
I wonder if anyone has launched using a 100’ rope. I anticipate swimming out past the break and trailing the kayak, giving it enough slack to get shoved back as nedded,
and simply pulling it though after the next breaking wave.
This may seem like the wimpy way to go… but better than these 60 year old bones getting pummeled . Searched the net, no examples of this. Anyone ever seen this done or tried it ?
