First Dip of Freedom Launcher Landing Gear on the Peoria River in 2022

Updated: Apr 28

Welcome to Wilder Side!


I'm David, Founder of Wilder Side. In this post, I'll be showing how I used the Freedom Launcher for Canoe to get into the water. It is fit up to a fifteen foot Wenonah Backwater.

I loaded up on my Jeep Willy's and went for a drive last Saturday. I was looking forward to the first launch of the season.







Launch March 5, 2022


We had an unusually first Saturday in March with the high in the mid 70's. It was an ideal time to give my own Freedom Launcher a spin on land and in the water. You can see the 12 minute clip below:

I was very happy with how quickly I could install the Freedom Launcher on my Canoe with two hand wheels and two pins. Assembly was a breeze, and by putting the batteries near the wheels, I could easily launch a +200# craft with one hand! The order board is opening this week. Check out our store to find out how this product may help you get to the water and in the water!
