Trem HD flip up wheels on an Aerotec

I can't find it now but I'm sure there are Aerotec owners on here who are using the flip up Trem HD transom wheels, the type with a 180kg rating that engage with the bottom button that's pre-fitted to an Aerotec.

My query is do they fit OK on the existing location of the button or do you have to move it to allow the tyres to clear the cones as they swing up?

I'm looking for a used pair but close to buying new... and knowing they are a straight fit will be an added incentive.

Hi, I will get back to you on this unless someone beats me to it just to double check what I'm saying.
If I remember rightly I faffed around with mine trying to use the supplied template but am sure you can use the button and fix the brackets wherever they fit best (not following the template) There is enough left and right play on the wheel legs to clear the cones. It was a while and my memory is shocking but I will try and confirm when I get the chance to check mine over.

Ok, just checked. Yes you can use the existing button.

If i remember rightly i think my template was a tiny bit out (though that might have been me). I tried to fix the brackets to the outer edge of the transom as possible trying to keep the wheels as straight as possible when in use but far enough away from the engine to give full movement when in the up position. Use the button as the reference and the rest will follow.

Regards, Steve.

Trems are the best and they locate in the lower button. For lower support etc. wheel barrow wheels

Thanks guys. I'll just make sure I get the cash in this Sat for the boat that I've sold (inc my much valued Trems) and then get some ordered.

Glad the button can stay in place as... if anyone has ever removed one to see... they are not simply bolted through but there is a machined out recess in the transom that the body of the button sits in. So some fiddly accurate double diameter drilling needed to replicate the fixing in a slightly different position.

Does anyone have an image of these Trem wheels on an Aerotec... I'm sure I've seen one on here in the past.

Due to the kindness of The Gurnard and (hopefully) the efficiency of UPS I should have a set of Trems next week to fit. Tide and weather look OK for a Thurs or Fri outing so I want to get everything organised for when they arrive to get them on.

Seeing an image would remind me of the height they need fitting and top of tyre to transom clearance etc.

Not a Aerotec but my Honwave 3.5 AE. Might help to position things. I used the transfers provided and they fitted a treat!Click image for larger version

I do appreciate that but I'd really still like to see them on an Aerotec due to the very deep V transom using up quite a lot of the ground clearance.

Well only if it's no trouble... don't go getting it wet again. It's frustrating as I can see an image in my mind I'm sure I'd seen on here before of a red Aerotec with Trems... a square on to the transom picture. But I've searched threads on here and not found it so far.
