my launching wheels are for sale

Hey all, I've been reading this forum for a couple of years and have noticed a popular topic is transom wheels. After doing much reading on the subject I decided to come up with my own interpretation of the transom wheel, and this is what I have come up with.
I bought some 16.5" x 8" wheeleze beach wheels and built my own mounting system around them, a pivot that lets you have them in the up or down position , I have them down when launching or beaching so I don't ground out my motor.
I have decided to sell them because my sib/motor combo is just a bit heavy to manage weighing in at 400lbs with no fuel or gear and I normally go out with my wife and kids its just too heavy for our local beach. I think these wheels would perform well under a 3.5m with a 2 stroke 25 or less or a larger boat with a stronger crew.
Here is the link to my add

thanks all, and happy sibbing

Handling a 30hp 4 stroke + Achiles (hypalon) with transom wheels looks very, very ambitious.
Yours is a very heavy boat.

But I must say that your wheels are a perfect fit solution. They look quite solid and wheelez wheels are perfect.

So I guess the problem is not boat neither wheels: as you point, the problem is the crew!
