    Launching and recovering a engel layfatte

    For all those that have subs similar to the engel layfayette did you put the boat in by hand or did you use something to lower it and take it out?

    RE: Launching and recovering a engel layfatte

    For a different sub, but this is my solution. It not only help me to launch the sub, but also to convey it from "base" at home to my car.
    Happy New Year to all.

    RE: Launching and recovering a engel layfatte

    Hi,

    I just put mine in the water by hand. Push it out stern first. If you can easily reach the shore then that works just fine. The Indy Admirals have this really cool launcher made out of an old ladder. Works really well for heavy subs. The Engel Lafayette isn't very heavy though.
