You're not thinking of mine are you?



They're not Trems, they're 200kg rated ones off ebay from a marine store. I don't rate them.

No but it's interesting to see another variant on the Aerotec... do you mean you don't like those in the image?

You can see where the trem wheels fit, I’ve decided to stop using the genuine zodiac ones because the trem wheels are so much easier to use.

The only problem is that they need to be fitted on an angle so when the wheels are down they’re closer together than the zodiac ones.

The wheels were already fitted when I bought the Bombard.

I’ll post a photo when I can

Did you fit the Trems like that so the originals could still be fitted without fouling the Trem brackets?

I maintain the Zodiac are the strongest type with some of the largest tyres and they put the SIB/outboard well off the ground. I've used/liked them for years and it's only a slight change in the way we use the SIB that's prompted the need for Trems.

Yes, they didn't survive the stress and strain of life on my Bombard. They are rated at 200kg, my Bombard, outboard and accessories probably weigh less than 150kg. The metal round the pin location hole buckled on both of the legs causing the wheels to rub the bottom of the boat. I couldn't lower the brackets, so put a wooden block between them and the transom. I ended up building a trolley and now only use the wheels for litterally getting the boat in and out of the water.

This shows clearance of a good 280mm or 11" in old money.

Ive put this one in to give you an idea of where i fitted my brackets. With the legs in the buttons and the wheels 710mm, 28" apart you should be somewhere near.

The plastic spacers that the brackets sit on are about 3mm if you need to replicate. Im sure ss washers would do, just to keep the brackets flush with the buttons.

Absolutely brilliant... many thanks. I have a fairly short period to fit the Trems before a planned outing so wanted to have an idea if there might be any obstacles but it seems OK.... but do the bracket bolts end up going through the inner data plate on that side?
