Gwizdz’s Gadgets and Gear: Automatic winch post hook-up – Traverse City Record Eagle

Hooking your boat up to the trailer can be a pain this time of year, as snowy or icy launch ramps make it a difficult proposition. The solution? Boat2Trailer accessories allow you to pull your boat up on the trailer and it latches automatically.

Called a Drotto boat latch, the gizmo allows you to hook up without getting out of the boat or leaning over the bow. Available in two sizes, a Drotto boat latch will set you back close to $300. But if you can afford it, it has to be considered a safety feature as well as a convenience.
