Kayak Jack is on a mission to make kayaking more accessible. My patented boat lift helps kayakers get their boat onto and off a car's roof rack easily. The Kayak Jack also doubles as a storage rack and rigging station. Purchase our high-quality solar shirts, apparel and gifts to support the Kayak Jack invention.
As a 50+ year-old single mother, I always loved the outdoors. Kayaking is one of my favorite activities and provides much-needed stress relief therapy. However, I had difficulty lifting a 60-pound kayak over my head to load it onto my roof rack. Kayaks are heavy, cumbersome, and made to "right" themselves, often flipping over on me when I tried to muscle them onto the car's roof rack or even the storage rack at my favorite spot. And let's not forget the scratches this impossible feat left on my car as I repeatedly attempted to load the boat alone. I hated that to go kayaking, I would have to solicit assistance from a neighbor or, in some cases, a stranger just passing by. I'm not the typical "damsel in distress," and I never wanted to appear weak or incapable. Sadly, I couldn't kayak as often as I wished. As I talked with female and male friends who love kayaking, most expressed the same frustration. I set out to invent a solution for the issue that I knew made it difficult for strong, independent women and men to enjoy this sport. I drew some sketches and contacted a patent attorney. This attorney happened to have a mechanical engineering background and was an avid kayaker himself! It was a match made in heaven! He believed in my ideas and product; the rest is history!
Our prototype is being refined and we hope to bring the Kayak Jack boat lift to market in the next 6 months.
In the meanwhile, we are offering our popular retro woody logo on apparel and gifts. Offering solar shirts to protect you from the sun's UV rays, hats, travel tumblers, tees, and more, know that your purchase of our high-quality apparel helps support this woman-owned USA business and will help bring our invention to market. It is our goal to gift a lift to organizations such as Heroes on the Water and to aid in their mission to support our American Heroes suffering from PTSD by giving them kayak fishing experiences to enjoy the natural therapy of time on the water. After all, we each deserve the opportunity to enjoy the gifts of nature!
