For slips and hard sand (for your size of SIB) the cheap plastic roller wheels are OK. No good on soft sand or pebbles.

I've just bought a set of Waveline dingy wheels from Force 4 for my sib for easy pulling up the shingle foreshore. Hope that helps as there's only 4 screws on each mounting on the transom.

you don't need wheels Kerny, just launch straight off the canal bridge, and best bit you can carry it past the locks

join the club Steve, this bloody chemo has wrecked my feet, feels like pebbles when I'm sat sitting
but, on a brighter note, just had me last dose of chemo, so light at the end of the tunnel at last
