At last got a SIB, help!

Finally, bought a very nice Bombard Aerotec 380 with a 15hp Mercury 2 stroke from a very nice guy on here.

Sorry for lack of pictures but can't find my camera at the moment.
Blew it up in the garden today, looks great.
I have a question for the Aerotec owners. The sib has a pair of launch wheels which connect to the transom as usual but I can't seem to find any way of taking them off then turning them over once launched, as there doesn't seem to be any connections for having then upside down as you see some of the sibs launch wheels.
I don't know what make they are and as I can't find my camera to take a picture.
Just wondered if anyone had any ideas?
What do you do with them?Don't really want to take them off completely everytime and put them back in the car.



Hope to launch from Studland beach at the national trust site on Saturday.

I'm so helpful about these 380s eh Whisper

Assuming you have the standard wheels ( big wheel & one straight length of box section stainless as a leg ? ) - there are two threaded holes - one obvious for using the wheels as wheels - the other for when you flip them up . ( just seen pic - yep that's them ! )

Screw them in the bottom hole ( now at the top of the transom) and rest the top ( now the bottom) of the box section against the outside of the transom pad - tighten up the screws and go boating !
