Boat Launch Videos

Below we have put together a few different boat launch videos for 2 scenarios. First you will notice a boat launch scenario of a one person launch. The second is with a 2 person scenario. These example boat launch videos are provided to show how easy it is to unload a boat using the automatic boat latch. This particular boat trailer setup in the video is an Alumacraft boat with a Shoreland’r trailer. The boat latch works on many most V hull boats. The boat latch is NOT LIMITED to this model.

Single Person Boat Launch Video

In this short boat launch video you will see how easy 1 person can unload a boat using the Drotto automatic boat latch.
In this boat launch video the chains and straps on the boat have been unhooked in the pre-launch area. The Drotto secures the boat to the trailer without the straps and chains hooked up. You may then back down into the water. Once you are ready to launch the boat, just pull the lever and away you go.

2 Person Boat Launch Video

This boat launch video shows you how easy 2 people can unload a boat using the automatic boat latch.
This 2 man boat launch video shows how fast and easy you can launch a boat with 2 people.  With a roller trailer (or bunk trailer) you can unhook the chains and straps on the boat in the dry section of the ramp. The boat latch secures the boat to the trailer without the need of straps and chains to hold the boat. Once the driver of the vehicle has backed the boat far enough into the water, The person can release the latch from inside the boat by pulling the rope.

Boat Launch Video Recap

We hope that these boat launch videos help give you a better understanding of how easy it is to launch a boat when using our boat latch. We some day hope to help many fishermen and boating enthusiasts all over the world. Whether it’s boating alone, boating with a novice, boating with a youngster or just plain speeding up the process of launching a boat we hope our Drotto boat latch helps.

In these boat launch videos you will also notice NO WET FEET. Having to step into the water trying to launch your boat before even getting out into the lake is a pain. Using our boat latch you will rarely have to get into the water to launch your boat again. Boating is supposed to be an enjoyable experience, KEEP YOUR FEET DRY.

Another large benefit of the boat latch is NO RESETTING of the product! That’s right. Once you launch your boat you can bring it straight back in without messing with the latch. It’s ready to grab your boat again without resetting anything!

Make sure your next boat outing is a great one! Order the Drotto boat latch on Boat2Trailer.com today!

I bought this last year and have loaded and unloaded my boat maybe 50 times since installing it. I am happy with it overall but I do have too mention to make sure you hook a safety chain to the boat before you pull up from the landing. I seriously wrecked my prop and lower unit because it didn’t lock. This unit has failed to lock on four other occasions. As long as I attached the safety chain on before I pull up the landing, I feel safe. Other than that, I am very happy with the unit. It does leave white markings on the front of the boat when you drive up to lock it.

I bought one after seeing it at the boat show. Of course I was skeptical at first because everyone says their instrument is the best thing since sliced bread. This time I am thrilled with this purchase it is the best. My friends are jealous and have been taking videos. I will never own another boat trailer that does not have this attached. I am amazed that manufacturers don’t offer to put it on your trailer when you order your boat. That’s not a big problem though it took less than 5 minutes to install and adjust.

Able to retrieve my boat and keep my feet dry. No more climbing out on the trailer tongue. These should be on every boat trailer!

I installed this on my boat trailer and it is an absolute must have. Makes loading and unloading so much easier and safer! Fishing the Green Bay this weekend and loading in rough water on the Fox River, this made load so simple! Can’t recommend highly enough!

This is a must for your boat trailer!!! Was planning to buy one of these since I fish a lot by myself. At my age at 62 at the time always had to climb over the bow of the boat to hook the trailer strap to the bow of the boat!!! After my stroke two years ago this is the cats meow after I got it!!!! Can't believe more people young or old haven't bought one of these???? Great product, been a life saver and it's worth the money!!!👍👍👏

Got this for my Dad last Christmas and he has loved it so far. He has a 19ft Crestliner with a roller trailer and musky fishes by himself quite often. Actually broke his hand because the boat flew off the trailer launching it a couple of years ago. Laid him up for 9 weeks. Now he just hits the lever while in the boat and drives it to the dock. He's a dentist so he kind of needs those hands. Well worth the safety, the convenience is just the cherry on top
