Hi New Member Honwave 3.2 10 hp

Hi I bought a Honwave 3.2 and Mariner 10hp second hand as I worked out its the biggest outfit that is light enough for me to pick up and handle on my own. If necessary I can lift it out of my boot and carry the outboard 50yds+ or pull the boat and outboard 150yds+ using the removable wheels. I wouldn't recommend it but just depends on how desperate you are. I did this the 1st time as I was itching to try it out, dragging it 150yds over sand dunes in Lancashire. It was like a worlds strongest man event but it was worth it and had a great 3hrs and loved the way it performed. Unfortunately tide had gone out another 50yds and coming back was even harder but members of the public took pity and all helped push me back over the soft sand. Couldn't thank them enough, phew. I now time launch and recovery times more favourable with the tide. Ha

Hello and welcome to the forum. A really useful size outfit you have... I like the Honwaves.

>>>dragging it 150yds over sand dunes in Lancashire. It was like a worlds strongest man event

Yes sand does that to you so I'll do anything to take the easy option and find harder surfaces to launch.

Hi & welcome. I have the slightly bigger 3.5 AE with a 20 hp Tohatsu. Love the build quality of the Honwave.
I built a little dolly for the front as we drag ours about 100m on a regular basis when we're on holiday and it takes all the strain + weight out of it. Having two 16 year old spotty teenagers helps as well !

Enjoy your outfit.

Dolly

What sort of dolly did you make and how do you fit it, I have just got a 3.4 flatty with a 15hp johnson and dragging is quite hard work (prefer towing my rib, a lot easier)

Towing dollys crop up on here for discussion periodically. Mine's shown on my profile picture fabricated from 20 mm box with a couple of wheelbarrow wheels. Clips onto the front handle with a snap shackle.

XR have a look at this thread...

How far do you move your SIB on transom wheels?

Encouraged by the dolly Paddlers, Chipko and others have made I ended up with similar... as shown in post #75 on that thread. Lots of whys and wherefores in the posts on the first 2 pages.

Nice one Fenlander. I have less than no technical ability when it comes to pasting/linking with my online experiences and I'm usually too embarrassed to ask the kids...
