Very valid point and this would put me off the set up in question.
My sib weight is probably at the limit that my launch wheels were designed to carry.
As I use a trailer the wheels only get used for launching and recovering the Sib onto a dry trailer.
They are now 4 years old and still going strong.
The mounting points are two through transom bolts (m8) both of which are well clear of the floor and up out of the water line.
One nylock m10 bolt horizontally secures the up and over wheel leg to the body of the setup. Can be easily removed in under one minute.
All in - for 100 quid I'm very pleased with their performance.
