Zodiac Cadet transom thickness

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone with a Zodiac cadet 2.6m could check the thickness of the transom. Going to get a pair of those solutions sellers wheels but need the thickness presumably for the bolt length

Thanks

If it is approx 25mm, would you also mind also measuring the transom height for me please?

I was after this info for my 3.6m fastroller but have been unable to find this info so far. I too am considering the wheels from solutions seller but would like to know what clearance I will get below the fin of mu outboard. A comparison with a cadet will give me some level of confidence.

Unfortunately I will be unlikely to be in a position to get this info for a month or so and am trying to see if I need to research more on plan B.

Will also be very interested to hear feedback regarding solution seller wheels. I've been pleased with the communication that I have had with them as a company buts its never quite the same level of confidence as hands on experience. Also curious if you go for the PU wheel option and wheel covers.

As promised, pictures of the measurements......

Note that there is a reinforcement doubler where the outboard clamps onto the transom...picture included.

Thanks but I think that is a bit thicker than ours. It must be an "s" model with an air floor because ours is only rated to 4hp. Thanks anyway!

See the makers plate, Puissance Maxi = 3kw or 4hp

Not an air deck, wooden slats on ours

Thanks for showing transom height. It looks quite different to my FR but at least it gives me an idea of size ~381mm/15" which is what my outboard recommends. Hopefully this will be fairly standard across Zodiac range and equally apply to my 360FR.
