honwave T32 - fitting launch wheels

I bought a new T32 today, I now need the relevant launch wheels
MES marine sell honwave compatible wheels so I might try these

Have any of you chaps fitted wheels to a t32? Do I need to drill holes in to the transom?

I think the OE wheel legs go into a socket thing that's bolted to the transom in the four corners of its backing plate. Not sure if the copy types are the same.

So with the two legs perhaps eight drillings?

BTW I reckon a really good SIB choice. Look forward to hearing how it goes with the 15hp.

Shouldn't be too difficult to fit then hopefully

Thanks 😀

I'll be posting my opinions on ribnet as soon as I've tried it.... Hoping 15hp will be adequate

If they're the same as the T-38 wheels (which I think they are) then it's as Fenlander says, 8 holes, some Sikaflex and job's a goodun!

Boy did I hate drilling that new transom but the original Honwave wheels are very very good, easy to use, easy to stow whilst on the water and easily take the 100kg ish of boat plus 20hp and other gubbins.

Enjoy your drilling!

you will like it and its perfect with a 15hp very nippy make sure if you buy copy wheels you get the heavy duty version because some of the cheaper ones are a bit wobbly and bendy .tbh for the sake of 60 or so I would get the gen ones

I believe they are the same wheels t32/t38

I'm going to look at he Europa wheel kit before I buy it, just seems a bit expensive for genuine Honda kit, and yes I am nervous about drilling into my new toy :-)

Good point beer belly, might be wise to buy genuine for peace of mind, anyone know best price for genuine Honda wheels?

I've not seen the genuine Honwave ones under 190-200 recently... the Europa's are 130. I'd love to see them side by side before deciding if it were me but guess there's nowhere that's going to happen.

I got these for my 3.2 airfloor from Barnet Marine http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Inflatable-B...-/400702865224
Not sure if that's what you're after? They are suitable for boat with trim tabs

Use marine grade sealant, stainless nuts/bolts and if you end up bolting sockets to the transom watch they dont dig into the rubber when rolling the boat back up. I made a couple of protective foam caps (gaffa tape and wide foam pipe insulation)

Fenlander commented on this in a post a while back, there are other posts about launch wheels, a forum favourite :-)

If the wheels you get are the same as the link then leave enough room for the outboard to turn on full lock each way. The heavy duty wheels carry my fully loaded sib (Inc 15hp outboard & fuel) with ease, no bend or movement
