The easiest way to launch & retrieve your boat!

There’s nothing better than a day on the water. But launching and retrieving a boat can be challenging. The ramp is often busy and there could be long lines. You don’t want to be tramping in and out of the water, hitching, unhitching and struggling to winch up your boat, with an impatient audience watching your every move.

Don’t spoil your day out messing around with your boat and trailer down at the ramp.

Get boat-ready and start your next adventure!

“The launch and retrieve system is an absolute beauty”

I have got to say that the launch and retrieve system is an absolute beauty. I quite often launch and retrieve my boat by myself and it makes the start of the fishing trip dry and hassle free and at the end of the day I’m in and away whilst others are getting wet, cold and frustrated. After a year or more of use it is blemish free and a testament to the quality of the stainless used and the build quality.

“Boating at the ramp cannot get any easier”

It’s three years since I installed the Release and Retrieve Boat Latch to my 5.5 metre AMM plate boat and another to a 7.4m AMM Tournament boat.Boating at the ramp cannot get any easier, simpler or expedient utilising this boat latch. While everyone else is doing battle with winch handles, ropes and chains. I am either boating over the horizon or on the way home.

“I am now the envy of boat owners”

Hi Guys, I bought one of your latches from your stall at the Brisbane Boat Show this year to install on my new 560c Barcrusher. The installation of it was so easy. No spacer plates or extra welds were needed as it fitted perfectly. I am now the envy of boat owners at the Hervey Bay Boat Club ramp as I launch and retrieve my boat by myself with ease.
