Dear Azzuro Thank you for this.
This is one of the trolleys I have shortlisted as well in view of its folding capabilities. I am confident I will be able to make all necessary modifications thus this is OK.

I've got the Honwave 3.2m with a Tohatsu 15hp which is the same weight as the 20hp, 52kg-ish?

Mine is inflated and deflated at the end of each session and goes into the back of a swb defender. The worst part for me is getting the engine back into the car as I have to swing the engine up to horizonal to get the prop in. This is much easier if you have a helper! The boat then gets thrown on top.

What I would be concerned about is knocking your car about getting the engine in and out, it's hard to man handle a 52kg delicately!

Also I wouldn't fancy having to lift the boat onto the roof bars if that's what you are planning?

Hi Alexo sorry not to reply sooner.
You posted a link asking if the trolley was the same as mine its not and cannt find a pic of mine (Got it from Pacermarine/Ebay 80). Must say it looks good and for sliding the motor in the car would be easy but with a 4 stroke one would still have to lay the motor on its side which could be difficult if the trolley was wide.
I must say you have had plenty of good advice I wish I had found Ribnet when I started I could have saved plenty of time and money

Hi Andy.
Thank you for this. I understand other people do what I planning for but need to think hard on how I will be getting this in/out of car. I will most likely make a trolley myself with wheels at both ends (same as I have seen on web) but with height adjusted for me car and will then slide engine in boot.
I am lifting boat (deflated) at the roof bars with the (mechanical) help of some rope / pulleys adjsuted at the roof bars.
Not easy task but not impossible.

Hi Honwave.
I agree that I got a lot of useful information and guidance which I am now trying to digest.
Thank you all.
