I have 49mm launching wheels, and although a struggle I can roll mine over baseball sized rocks by myself. Unload the boat of the fuel tank, anchor, gear, and I can pull it right up on the beach. I have seen your posts and where you go, plus the photo above of your boat in the waves, and I would rest far easier with the boat safely above tide line. I do know a couple of guys who flipped a SIB anchoring in shallow water on a calm day...except those three swells that flipped them over. Never trust the Pacific or any ocean for that matter.
I am super jealous of the places you guys have to visit. You would find me exploring, and camping on those islands if they were around here.
