thanks for the pics

but... how do you get them past the engine?

I see that they swivel up from the lowered position, but I dont think they would clear the Yam even when its fully tilted up.

What happens on your boat with the Evinrude?

Do you have to disconnect them from the tube, pull them out and then stick them back in again with the tyre at the top of the transom?

thanks
Andy

Yep

They just have one heavy duty pin holding them in so doesn't take a second. Not like the horrible OEM Zoziac transom wheels I've had in the past that take ages to unscrew each time

Don't think it they would have a problem clearing your Yam, is a 2 or 4 stroke?

Ok... I will order them.
I intend using the SIB instead of the RIB on holiday this year.
I think these will allow me to haul the boat up on some beaches.

Thanks Andy

can't imagine your motor's any bigger than mine then and there's pleanty of clearance around mine.

Even with the wheels it's still pretty heavy to move about but a hell of an improvement over no wheels!

Are you planning on moving it on your own or with help? on sand or pebbles?

I think I will be dragging it myself...maybe my 7 and 9 year old boys will help (by sitting in it while I drag it ).
I think it will be sandy beaches only. I doubt they would work that well on pebbles??

Is there a lot of flex in the supporting arms when your pulling it along fully rigged?

Not that I noticed, it seemed pretty rigid from memory

Where are you going to be in August?
I will be in Helford during the first week and Salcombe in the second week.
