I wasn't aware of that.. guess I learn something new every day ?
But I use bunks on my trailer SIB..I wouldnt recommend rollers. Boat floats on as easy as any other boat I have ever owned. Tubes sit on edge of bunks..so cant swivel when towing.
Bogmonster..My Mariner 3.3hp two stroke is the aux on my 4.3 m heavy wood floor SIB..shoves it along nicely at 4 knots.. thats on a good day with little wind. Same engine shoves my slat floor 2.7m sib at 4 knots too..but its a displacement hull. i think it could make a small airfloor plane with one..on a good day
