Here are a couple of our boat loading videos and our customers boat loading videos. These are example boat loading videos of how well the Drotto boat latch works with a V hull front boat. The 2 particular boat trailer setups in these boat launch videos are an Alumacraft boat with a Shoreland’r trailer and a Ranger boat with a Ranger Trail trailer. The boat latch works on many many types of V hull front boat and trailer setups. The boat latch is NOT LIMITED to the the models shown here.

Description of the Single Person Boat Loading

In this boat loading video you will see the person has already docked the boat, driven the vehicle down to the ramp, entered boat again and now is proceeding to load the boat. In the boat load video he is coming in just above idle speed (not power loading by definition) and guiding the boat up into the boat trailer. The Drotto automatic boat latch has an over sized span in order to give him a larger area to make contact with. Once he has made contact with the boat latch it will help guide his bow eye into the center clamping mechanism. Once he hears the click, he know its got it. Now the boat is secured to the boat, he is ready to exit the boat and pull to a safe pre-launch area.

Extreme Wind and Current Conditions

After a number of customer requests for an extreme boat loading video. We decided to take the latch out in 40 degree weather, 30 mph winds and flood gates wide open current. We loaded 4 times without a problem and on the 5th he finally missed in order to give customers a “what if I miss” scenario. You will notice it basically loads the same way in calm weather or extreme.

Description of the Head to Head Comparison

In this boat loading video you will see the person on the left is using a standard bunk trailer setup. The same person on the right has the boat latch installed on the trailer. In this boat loading video they are both coming in just above idle speed (not power loading by definition) and guiding the boat up into the boat trailer. The boat on the right has the boat latch which automatically grabs the boat and locks it snug against the trailer. The person on the left has to keep the motor running in order to keep the boat snug against the front roller. He then has to crawl over the hull of the boat and hookup the straps and chains to keep it tight. The person on the right has already left the ramp to hookup the chains and strap in the dry safe area. We then show the exact same boat loading video with a roller trailer while the person on the left with the bunk trailer is still loading. Pretty obvious how much time a person can save at the boat landing by using the boat latch.
