Boat Latch - Launch

Boat Launch


Set Latch to ‘Retrieve’ position. boat-snare-and-latch.jpg 
Release safety chain and release winch, so the boat can move back and be caught by the latch.
Set the latch to the 'Release' (Port) position.
The boat and trailer are reversed into the water to a depth where the boat MUST be UNABLE to float off the trailer. The latch is holding the front of the boat, and there is resistance from rollers/slides to movement.
Start the boat motor and ease forward. The spring loaded catch will automatically release.
Reverse or glide off the trailer.
