What an awesome product. I fish alone a lot and it makes launching and loading much easier. Don't need to go in the water. When loading, it takes a few tries to know how hard to hit the latch to make it latch. Boat owner for 30+ years and I highly recommend it!!
I live in Southwest Minnesota and the Drotto makes loading and unloading the boat on my own the easiest it could be, especially with the shallow landings we have here. Anyone with a roller trailer will love this thing.
Absolutely the best accessory I've ever purchased for any boat. We now launch the boat and load it more like pure boating professionals! No more --oops, back it up more honey... a bit more, now more gas on the engine back up oh noooooo *crunch*. I now board the boat with dry shoes and legs - no more wading to help launch the boat, I just unfasten the winch and safety chain, get in, have wife back up to just float the stern and pull the rope -- Voila!!!, slides off like goose grease...
Quality product. Installation was straightforward for my Alumacraft Voyageur boat and Shorelander roller trailer combination. I had to move my winch post about 2" as the boat latch was slightly larger than the roller it replaced. Makes it much easier to load and unload my boat when I'm fishing solo.
This should be an option when purchasing a trailer. Get these out to boat shows makes launch and loading much easier and safer!
My wife gave me a drotto catch & release for my birthday. (I researched and suggest it). I mounted it and used it yesterday. First, installation was simple. I chose to move the post vs move the boat from trailer position. The drotto r eleased perfectly and latched perfectly. I'm 71 and fish alone during the week this simplifies loading and unloading safely ! Incredibly effective.

Very well made but did not fit well with my Lund SS 16.5 ft boat. Had a hard time locking it on. Returned without any problem. Scheels is a top quality store with excellent customer service.
