Suzuki DF25 and Transom Wheel Launching

I'm a new Sibber, Just ordered a Honwave T40 and looking to power it with either a Suzuki DF20 or DF25.
It will be trailered but I will be launching with transom wheels.
What are people's thoughts on whether the DF25 option (62kg ish) will be too heavy to move around comfortably?

I have a T40 and a Suzy 25. I traiker it everywhere as its a weighty piece of kit. I have no experience of transom wheels unfortunately? But the biat and engine combo is excellent.

Hi, thanks for the reply.
Actually, I decided on this combo after reading some of your previous posts. Your combo reasoning is exactly the same as mine i.e. wanting a new RIB/SIB and trouble free boating without spending a fortune.
I'm going to go with the 25 and launch off the trailer.
Cheers, Mark

Ah nice one. Heres mine going in for its first engine service. I've been extremely happy with her. Launching and retrieval from the trailer is a doddle. I have added an extra bench and padded them for extra comfort.

The one that came with the engine. She planes at 8-9 knots and I've had 25 knots out of her. I have thought about changing props but wouldn't know where to start

Hi Ash, excellent, ticks all of my boxes!
What's involved with breaking in the engine please ?
Thanks.
