Congradulations on a creative solution to getting on the water.
If you want more inspiration, this last weekend I say a 91 year old with a lot of weakness and atrophy in both lower legs lower himself from a dock into knee deep water, pull the kayak between his legs with one hand while holding on to the dock for balance with the other. He then sort of fell back into the cockpit and used two hands to pull each leg in afterwards. He then paddled 6 miles around the islands on Squam Lake in NH. Grinning the whole time.
