with that much water on the trailer and on bunks you shouldn't need any help really
and to be fair it loaded itself without any tention on the winch strap!

$1300 dollars I would hope it is more complex. Clever system though.

I hope you're referring to the great strength of the Arctic hull, not the standard of Arctic drivers

I've been an avid power loader for some time now, it's well the way forward
But then I would say that, I'm an Arctic driver...

i,m with you willk well put mate [/QUOTE]

Crikey only making an observation........ If thats thier boat handling / training skills and their happy to post it for everyone to see, I'd need to be in real trouble before I'd except their offer of help.
Having spent 25 years in the Solent I have seen many rescues by supposed profesionals where they are anything but profesional and on some occasions, in my opinion, actualy made the situation worse and put people in increased danger.
Sorry, only my opinion, not meant to upset anyone!

How do You keep the boat in place after " power loading" single handed on a traditional trailer with rollers? Using a fairly steep ramp, the SR would roll halfway back into the water the moment would ease on the throttle, or is just to leave gear on untill bow fastened?

Don't put the trailer in so deep. If it's at the right depth then you'll need a bit of power to get the boat on and shouldn't come back off. Works better with boats that have a bit of hp on tap

Yes, exactly that.

My rib rolls freely once released from the winch. To get off the trailer, I have to "power on" so the winch strap can be released. Same recovering, "power on and hold".

You need to get your signals right! It makes solo launch/recovery that bit more interesting too...
