Testimonials
"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.  So thank you again and I have been recommending it to all my fisho mates, keep up the good work.  Yours sincerely  Andrew McNicol  
“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. It just doesn’t get any better than that!” Rick Huckstepp
"Hello Geoff, I met you at the Melbourne boat show. One of thousands I suppose, but I did buy one of your boat latches and fitted it to my Carribean Intruder. Tested it today with great success and very happy with the purchase. Thanks heaps,  Bob"
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.. Thanks for your great invention.  Regards,   Darren Rechner
From Greece Hello. Last weekend I have installed the latch. I must repeat what other of your customers already have said: "This was the best investment for my boat". Easy out and easy in. Thanks for your support.  Panagiotis  
Hi Geoff Thought you might be interested to know and see that I fitted my latch on Saturday, launched and retrieved yesterday for the first time and it worked perfectly. Instructions were perfect and you see that I used the extension.  Only had to drill one new extra hole at the front of the winch arm.  I even got the “finger” spacing perfect. Our boat a 6.2m Haines Signature 600BR on a Mackay Trailer. Wife very happy that she didn’t have to get her feet wet!!!

Hi Geoff, I just wanted to let you know that I purchased the "Boat latch" last week from Tamar Marine in Launceston fitted it the next day and it worked perfectly on the first launch and retrieve. I have bought a lot of boat "Gadgets" in my time and I must say that this is one of the best things I have brought in a long time. Many Thanks, Regards, Tony Jacobs
Hi Geoff, I spoke to you a couple of weeks ago about your product and managed to pick one up from Smiths Marine in Collingwood. I found fitting it to my Dunbier trailer a breeze and it works as described! I wouldn’t be without one! Ian
Geoff, Bought one of your boat latches after dislocating my shoulder on a slippery ramp. No longer get wet and it launches and retrieves my Haines Hunter 565R effortlessly every time with great envy and interest at the ramps I use. Well done. I recommend it at every opportunity I can. Thanks again,  Rod Hamilton, Fairhaven, Victoria.

Hi Geoff, Following installation, I have trialled the boat latch system on my Quintrex 4.5 runabout and it is fantastic to use and is virtually foolproof providing you take the time to line the boat up centrally to the trailer when retrieving the boat onto the trailer. I am 70 and this system saves me a lot of drama and effort when launching and retrieving on my own. Previously when retrieving I had to drive the boat up to the roller, leave the engine in forward to hold the boat against the roller, climb out over the prow of the boat and hook up the winch and safety chain, climb back into the boat to place it in neutral and switch off the engine, then climb back out of the boat into the water to drive from the ramp. It is a fantastic, well thought out and engineered design and with the roller extension fitted, as required for this boat, it works perfectly every time and is worth every $ of the outlay. Kind regards, Bob Rickard  - Augusta, WA
Wow works great. Here it is  installed, used 3" structural  channel aluminum  to support it and to make up the space under the winch support. Will send you a video of it working the people around here are surprised hopefully some customers for you. Excellent product wife happy doesn't have to get her feet wet any more. Thank you, Sal Cutaia, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina,U.S.A
