I've been trying to work that bit out too!! - I'll be interested to hear if anyone has experience with these wheels.

I'd like to find that out before buy a Honda boat - as the wheels look essential to the whole thing to me.....

i have a 3.4mtr sib and the wheels like malthouse sells are fantastic.

my 3.4 will plane with one onboard with 6hp but needs 15hp with 2 adults and a child.

I have still got the Bravo Hp pump if anyone wants to make an offer . I have kept it so far thinking I may one day end up with another sib .

As for wheels I used to use an alloy Eckla kayak trolley , which stows very easily . and strapped on just fine if you don't want to bolt wheels on the transom.
However wheels are not much use on sand or shingle and after beaching it one day on the outgoing tide I ended up buying some infatable rollers as getting the boat back to the water without them was hard work for 2 people.

I find my wheels fine on sand and shingle - wet sand anyway. Maybe my boat is lighter than yours.

Now come on , make your mind up is that wet sand , or shingle and dry sand .
You know what I mean the sort of sand or fine shingle that is even hard to walk on , you couldn't even push a wheelbarrow over it

The 3.8 with a 20 needed ideally 3 people to carry it , 2 could pick it up OK but keeping the bow up needed another hand .

Just seen a Yam 380s for sale, which I understand has floor boards instead of the inflatable floor - has anyone any experience of this boat? It is being sold with a 15hp 4 stroke Yamaha with little use. The package seems very keenly priced, hence my interest!!

Cheers
Al
