Took boat on maiden voyage this morning and found a problem with the wheels
Because you don't take them off and clutter up the inside of the boat, or they are not big and ugly and stick up above the transom, its all too easy to forget that you have not raised them up
if anyone has seen the episode, all I can say is Mythbusted
Other than that minor hiccup, they were great although the boat still needed quite some lifting at the front for the 100 meters to the slip. May need to come up with a dolly to take some of the weight off the front.
I earlier made a comment about weight of wheels potentially putting bag off balance. Well, our attempt today we left out the bench seat and no problems with bag being out of balance so I think I can say that the wheels add no noticeable bulk or weight to the bag.
It may just be a lowly sib, but put it attracted a fair bit of attention and I think admiration for its ease of launch and recovery by hand. So much so that someone who saw us launch waited till our return to ask us questions on the wheels he was so impressed.
