We installed a ramp at our boat launch over the winter to help people with disabilities get into boats at the Corps of Engineers lauch at East Branch lake.

It's not really made for wheelchairs, but it can work for one in a pinch. You pull your boat along side of it, and the handicapped person can walk up the ramp, and step into the boat, instad of down into, vise verse, and not having to deal with a wobbly dock is nice, it is kind of rough for me at times. I would have put it elsewhere for ease on everyone, but the point is to have it.

good deal.

for wheelchair users the best thing is to have strong people to lift into boat. designing one for wheelcair users would also include designing a boat to go with it.
