Boat Retrieve
Set the latch to "Retrieve" (Starboard) position. Reverse trailer into the water to a similar depth that was used for a “good launch” at this ramp. Rear rollers/slides are about 50mm (2”) below water. Too deep (common mistake), no roller resistance on approach and speed will be high and equipment may be damaged. Drive the boat onto trailer to within one metre of the latch and stop.
When the boat has settled (2 seconds), gently drive it up the last metre to the latch. The latch will now slide over the snare and the boat will be securely held. Stop the motor and lift the propeller leg. Move boat & trailer 3M (10ft) approx. out of water. Attach the winch hook to the snare and winch the boat up so the bow is firmly on the roller or V-block. NOW move the boat to the car park. Secure safety chains and tie downs as usual. Disengage latch for road travel.
When traversing boat ramps or roads NEVER rely on the latch to hold the boat onto the trailer. Safety chains and winch cable/strap and tie down straps should always be used to secure the boat to the trailer.  The latch should be disengaged for road travel.
