Anyone used one of these?....

I flat out refuse to pay 150 for a pair of steel box section legs with a wheelbarrow wheel on each. Plus this way I can take my aux with me...

I think we all go through that when you buy your first set of transom wheels, but I have to say that once you bit the bullet and buy a set they do seem worth it compared to the alternative, they are just so much easier to use than a trolley, some people on here make them themselves if your a bit handy
Good luck whatever you decide

I made and used a launching trolley for my first sib last year. It worked great but was a pain in the posterier with the tides on the Bristol Channel. Forked out a hundred quid this season for transom wheels with the biggest wheels I could get and am loving them.
