Even though my Zodiac 3.6m Fastroller has transom wheels fitted, pulling/pushing it the >~100m requires quite an effort that at my age, takes it out of me, especially after pulling it up the ramp.
The front of the FR is fitted with a bow handle like this... Ron Hale Marine Ltd - Zodiac Cadet Bow Handle
It also has two D rings fitted further beneath for towing.
Is this carry handle going to be man enough carrying the weight of the boat? The manual does say, not for towing - use D rings instead.
What do other people do when moving their boats over more than a few tens of yards? Does anyone use a harness (attached to the D rings) or have made a dolly wheel to rest the keel on and take the weight of the boat?
I realise that this is launch trolley territory, but this is not an option - boat is mm perfect getting it past bollards and trailers/trollys are against lease of where we stay and enforced.
