I put a set on mine tried them on the yard the boat is too heavy at 100 kg + engine for me to move any distance without a front dolly even then soft sand would be hard work on your own.ok for smaller boat though OMO

Cheers

Launch wheels suitability

The solutions sellers ones in this thread really are excellent, but may not be substantial enough for a 40hp engine.
