Best of all options... Don't drag the boat by the bow toggle. Get out in knee deep water and pick up the boat by the coaming and carry it out. If it is loaded with gear, use both hands.


I think I cause more damage launching because for a dumpy beach break launch I sit on the sand and wait to get "floated" so I can sprint past the break and generally get situated (skirt, mitts, etc...) back too far and have to scootch along the sand to get in deep enough water for that to happen.

Of course my landings are often far from perfect too....
