i found that the large wheels like those in the picture are much better than the small ones on soft sand

my wheel arms bend under the boat to balance the weight

Matt, I had those very wheels on an Avon 3.4m. It worked well. I found pulling it across the beach a long way very tiring though. A very handy feature of the wheels is that if you are running in shallow water, you can lower the wheels, and keep on motoring without the risk of the prop hitting the bottom. Makes beaching on a not very steep beach much easier!

Matt when you say you have 'seen those plastic ones' do you mean the 'dinghy dolly' type? The wheels on those things are small and I expect only suitable for use on hard surfaces. They are rated to carry 113kg max.

There is something similar but more substatial here http://www.ronhalemarine.co.uk/super...unching_Wheels

Good wheels, but bloody hard work over anything but a solid surface
