Default Hey Trailerboaters...

Check this out, I found it in my Boat-U.S. magazine this month.
Looks neat.

Video
You've got to see the video...you motor up to your trailer, it automatically hooks you on, centers the boat, and winches the boat up onto the trailer.
Too cool.

why did the strap have so much slack in it.

Do you really want ropes rubbing your paint job?

It is pretty cool and i would use it on my CC but not my scarab.

The ropes are wrapped in vinyl and for bigger boats it is wireless remote electric winch. I'm ordering one.

Won't work unless you have the side rollers.
