Boat Loading Videos

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 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.

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 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.

I wish I had purchased this unit a long time ago. I’m 73 and just had surgery on my back so it’s a little hard to get my boat on the trailer after installation of the Drotto I load the boat in a couple of minutes and out of the water with no problem. Thank you Drotto for a great product.

Had to modify the trailer as my Mastercraft trailer had a welded mounting post.Drotto fit great but to high after install. Had to cut mounts shorter on trailer and redrill mounting holes. Seems to work great so far.

I fish mostly with my young Son, so the Drotto has helped me load and unload so much quicker and easier than wading in the water with a rope. I'm very happy with the product, and would recommend it for anyone who loads and unloads by yourself.

simple installation and takes all the worries of loading and unloading out of mind.

I love the new Drotto Boat2Trailer hitch. People actually take a double take at the boat ramp when I load my boat. It so fast and effortless to load and unload. The hitch worked flawlessly from day 1. Read instructions and installed with boat on trailer in the garage. Easy as 1 2 3. I have an 1850 Lund Impact XS on a lund roller trailer. Perfect fit. I would recommend your product to any fisherman who hates wasting time at busy landings and want a superior product.

This device is incredible ! The only way you could make launching and retrieving your boat any easier is to not go boating . If you don’t want to get your feet wet or do the “tight rope “ walk down the trailer tongue to launch and retrieve your boat, I highly recommend this product. Since I launch and load our boat by myself, this device has added more years to our boating enjoyment ! Great product, easy to use and easy to install !

Have had great success with this product. It's great for fishing alone. And it works great when you are unloading at a steep ramp. I recommend it highly.
