Store a sib on transom wheels?

Is it ok to do this?
Im taking it to the caravan and want leave it set up while im there. It would be on hard standing (gravel) so was hoping i could just leave the OB on with the transom wheels. It a honwave t32 with v floor.
Would it be best to raise the front end off the gravel as well. I dont have a trailer.

It will be fine re the OB and transom wheels etc... it's what we do 2wks at a time. The OB weight is pretty well all supported via the transom by the wheels.

If you are leaving it outside inflated bear in mind if it is in the sun the air inside tubes/floor will expand and could go well over pressure. It needs the pressures dropping a bit while stored to allow for this... or a cover that keeps direct sun from the tubes.

How about this, it can be quickly dismantled and stored away when not needed, much easier that dragging the boat about on the transom wheels. . . Also keeps the V floor off the ground

I would be happy to do what you suggest for a week or two, but make sure you lock the engine if you leave it on.

If it were me when I was "parking" it I'd pop something under the front where it will sit on the gravel. Something like an old car mat or scrap of carpet.
