An indicator telling you that you had backed the empty trailer to the correct loading position in the water.
Think low light conditions, poorly lit ramp, rainy, obstructed view, etc.

If so, what would you pay for it?

Have you ever seen this "feature" before?

It is the loaded trailer that most have trouble with. Most of the newer trucks have a back up camera which works fine with an empty trailer.

Never had any issues like that before, even while loading/unloading at night. I wouldn't buy a product like that.

"correct" loading position is not always the same - it can vary depending upon ramp slope in my experience.

Yep.

Another mouse trap. Market it to THMarine so they can Chinese”ize” it and make it cheap and fragile with no warranty.

This past weekend I was near a ramp getting the boat ready to launch. A guy passed me and backed his boat down the ramp. Then he proceeded to get it ready unhooking it, putting the life vest in the boat,putting his rods in the boat and then tying a rope to it and to the step rail of his truck.. Then he tried to launch the boat. He ran over the rope 3 times and had to pull forward. What a disaster he was launching the boat. Idiots will be idiots. They are out there on every lake.

Do they make trucks nowadays with "back-up the boat trailer assist?" THAT'S WHAT THOSE PEOPLE NEED!

What people need to do it practice in a empty parking lot till they can use there mirrors to back up!! I’ve seen tons of new boat owners this year.. they stick out like a sore thumb. The ones that kill me are the pontoon boats that back down the ramp then start loading all their stuff on the boat. But that’s a whole different issue. Lol
I try to launch early, at least avoid the morning heartache! Lol
