Title: Watercraft beaching device

Abstract: A watercraft beaching device (10) includes one or more collapsible upright supports (11) and (12) which hold a pair cushioned hull engagement surfaces (13) in spaced apart relationship. Advantageously, hull engagement surfaces (13) are elongated to engage more than a single point or area along on side of the hull of watercraft (1) to prevent watercraft (1) from pivoting about the mooring point on the shoreline. Additionally, supports (11) and (12) are configured to hold hull engagement surfaces (13) a sufficient distance above the shoreline to insure that the hull does not come into contact with the aforementioned abrasive agents or shoreline.
