woody67 saying hi

Hi all.
Great forum and very informative,
Just waiting for the spring,
Just bought a Seago 320, practicing unpacking/packing. Picture attached, possibly.Got this so easy to singlehand, as my back is a bit fragile.
Looking to use in North Norfolk initially, around Wells next the sea.
Considering a Tohatsu s/s 9.8, and would welcome advice on best trolly to assist in loading into car and onto transom, thanks.
Shame about the match result!

Welcome to the forum Woody. Tohatsu 9.8 2-stroke will be ideal. Are you sure you’ll need a trolley, they are very light??

I have transom wheels on the sib and use that as a “trolley” by wheeling it right to car so you only have to manhandle the outboard a yard of two.

Hi Fenlander, apologies, I was unclear, looking at 4 stroke, 37 kgs. Not handled an outboard above 4 hp before, they look very bulky,

Ah yes the 4-strokes can be a bit heavier... and yes they are much more bulky in their dimensions.

A few years back I'd have said go for the best 9.8 2-stroke you can find but life moves on and many are going for new 4-strokes on SIBs now.

My OB lives on a trolley like this and on the rare occasions we need to move it about other than on the boat that's what I use... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Outboard-...IAAOSwhzRahGSZ

Having said that I never use the trolley on a day out... with our 44kg OB I still used the boat as the trolley.
