Fitting advice for launch wheels -honwave

Just received my launch wheels for my Honwave 3.8m IE aerodeck. Purchased from Pacer marin, happy with the price Price etc but there is a lack of detailed fitting instructions.

Can someone who has already done this give me some advice on fitting them.

Eg. What sort of distance from the edge of the transom in both the vertical and Horizontal plane should they be?

What size Bolts should I use? (thought that they would've been supplied)

Any other useful info would be much appreciated,

Thanks in advance

Jake

Ps. Although happy with the price, I wasn't happy with the delivery!!!!! They delivered when I was out and the wife was in in the doghouse for another few days then

Fitting advice for launch wheels -honwave

Hi jake, i bought the exact same wheels for my honwave couple of years ago, and they came with the stainless steel nuts and bolts.
I would phone supplier and quiz them. The wheels are expensive enough without having to buy extra nuts and bolts.
When i fitted my wheels, i just googled honwave transom wheels and went off the pics on the web.
The transom back plate kind of dictates the position, cos of the shape (as pic).

Hope this helps

When I bought mine they came withe the requisite bolts etc - so they should be there. From memory I can't remember there being much in the way of fitting instructions - but as previously said the shape of the mounting plates fairly much dictates the position - ie closely following the contours of the seams joining the transom to the floor/tubes - just make sure that they are level and that when in the up position don't foul the tubes. I got one of mine slightly too close to the tubes which made it quite difficult to locate the retaining pin in the up position.
Another word of warning - when using them and beaching the boat don't leave the wheels/transom in the water - the lapping of the water can cause the retaining pins to come out and the the to & fro motion can ovalise the retaining pin holes. Oh and don't forget to Silkaflex the bolts/holes you drill in the transom

Honwave positioning of transom wheels

The starboard wheel is marginally too close to the tubes when up

[QUOTE= Oh and don't forget to Silkaflex the bolts/holes you drill in the transom [/QUOTE]

Thanks guys just a couple of things, firstly whats the silkaflex for? Is it a seal to stop water getting in and corroding the bolt holes/backplate etc? If so would a rubber piece cut to size do?

Secondly, when you say marginally too close, do they need moving in a few millimeters or centimeters.

Best wishes

Jake

No, it's to stop water getting into the transom and rotting the wood core.

Its only a few millimetres - just check the position with the wheels up before drilling - I didn't, I just followed the pics and the outline of the seam/join.
Yes Silkaflex to seal the holes and bolts to stop water getting to the transom core - a rubber seal under the plates will not do. Don't use bathroom sealant either - will not stand up to salt water and sun.

Hello all of you.
I am from Belgium and new in this forum.
I just bought a second hand Suzumar 420 VIB with the same kind of air taps extending behond the transom.
They are 45 cm long.
I see that wheels kit on different e-shops and I also found the instruction sheet ( very simple indded with no drawing and no informations at all about the dimensions of the tubes ).
Can someone who arleady bought that devices, tell me if the tubes are long enought to fit on my boat ?
Thanks in advance.
Philippe C.
