Just a bit of stainless tube from eBay and the local steel fabricator welded them on for a tenner. No loss of strength as there's no cutting and they sit just above the transom when raised. I struggled to push them down off the stud when I was in the water and pushing them down with an oar was a pita !

Thanks. Numerous times I've used my cosh and a block of wood on the top! I'm going to look into that, thanks

No problem, just make sure you mark the location you need it welding with a decent marker.

Hi blootac here is the old thread where I made the outrigger / auxiliary carrier.

Need for an auxiliary engine on a SIB???

Looking for a small two smoke at present as an auxiliary for my little Seago so will be knocking together something to carry it an an auxiliary too.
Going to see a Suzuki 2.2hp today so fingers crossed it's in decent nick.

>>>BTW... and I'm whispering now... wouldn't mind a pic of the rollers deflated to see how they would pack away... not that I'm thinking they might be of use to us one day... just out of interest you understand!

Well 15mths is a long time in "I'll never want those" land... so I seem to have a pair of Gurnard style rollers now!

They adapt to the V of the Aertotec very well.

Its funny how things change Fenlander ..looking back over this thread..where everyone was saying transom wheels are a must have for their boat due to waves..running up beaches etc ..

I know several of those folks have now upgraded to RIBS..so they no longer have the luxury of "must have" transom wheels ..wonder what they do now ?

I suspect the same as we did with our heavy boats in years gone by .. use an anchor off shore for beach landing.. trailers or roller boats for recovery ?

Yup..never say never ..hey.. one day I might buy a set of transom wheels ..but thats a few years down the line yet. A transom dolly that fits on all my SIBs is the closet I will get for now

Mind you I nearly passed out blowing them both up in quick succession... I guess I should have used a pump!

You wanna seen the state of my brother in law after he blew his kids paddling pool up by mouth😨😨😨.
I kid you not this thing had more air in it than a 9m rib.
He couldn't walk in a straight line for over an hour😂😂😂.
