Launch wheels with Lifters!

Wanted to try some lifters but had already bought some transome wheels and you cant have both.
Or can you?


This is a prototype gonna test them later hopefully!
They remove with one bolt,takes seconds to put them on and take them off to use the wheels.

Are these like trim tabs?
And if so, are they designed to keep the bow down, or do they stop the splash pattern you can get with inflatables?
Cheers,
Geoff

Success!
They work a treat!
Without it takes about 7-8 seconds to get on a plane.
But with these on it just about hops on straight away!
Also the stern doesnt dig in so much when turning so you keep more speed.
I know its not a new idea thats not my point.
I just wanted to see if i could have my wheels and lifters/tabs at the same time which i can.
Just trying to make the most out of my 8 little horses!
Gonna make them out of plastic now (and a bit bigger like the proper ones) as at the mo they are aluminium and prob dig into the plastic of the wheels.
Look strange,work good.

I ran something like them for year on my 11'' SIB, with a 15 hp 4 stroke. Yes they did work well. I was thinking of getting a set for my new 11'' rib. But after seeing the great job you did with yours, I may make them myself.

Again, great job.

Thanks
Nick

I'm missing something.... How do you use the wheels? Are the lifters removable?

No they clip on to the lip that locks the wheels down and are secured by a long bolt that goes up through the alu plate and the arm with the wheel atatched then i have a butterfly nut that tightens the whole thing up.
To use the wheels undo the nut pull the plate off and then use the wheels as normal simples!

Oh! I was missing something! I didn't read your original post quite closely enough or see the bolt/nut in the pic. Great idea!

Nice job , just notice from looking at pictures I would change the bolt direction around , have d nuts on the outside of transom as if u slip back toward transom u could cut ur heels/foot badly or puncture fuel tank
