Sib Launching Wheels

I found these while browsing on Boats and Outboards, they may be on benefit to some people on here that have been asking on how to get round the problem of the honda inflatables having the trim tabs built in. Don't know how good they are i cant see them being as strong as normal ones.

What do you guys reckon?

Look Here

I bought my honda from them and said the biggest drawback was the difficulty with the launching wheels . They said they would work on it .

Looks like a good system to me . The ones that bolt on are a pain anyway to fit when the boat is on the water .


Talking of honda SIBs I still have a brand new cover for mine , genuine Honda item cost 100 . So if anyone with a 3.8 honda or similar sib wants a decent cover give me a shout .

Is it just me or to raise / lower them do they rotate (about an axis running bow to stern) rather than swing (about an axis in the plane of the transom). If so then to put them up/down you need to take the engine off the back which seems like a pain in the tits to me...

Looks like you pull the R clip out and pull the leg out of the tubular fitting and then fit it the desired way up

OK makes more sense - but I guess there is some fairly heavy forces on the r-clip when in use then. Hope the float then if "legs" come off completely.
