Have a delivery arranged 114gbp, so that is the route I will go, on the basis it would cost me much more getting it myself.

What sort of fuel burn can I expect with this rig.?
hi Simcal, just out of interest do you have any photos of your rib / engine ?

Yes. Here is the rib. The trailer does not come with it. I will fit launching wheels or maybe buy a folding launching trolley. I live just 500 mtrs from the beach and if surf not high will launch there.

Good news and welcome to ribnet! I've always had great advice and help on here. And met some great people who are now friends. SAFETY threads tend to create very passionate responses from some. Advice is advice, you don't have to take it. But with the experience on here
, if everyone is saying the same thing? Good decision

nice pity the trailer didn't come with it, would have been just right for the occasional towing job

think a launching trailer would be easier, 500mtrs maybe a struggle on the way back after a good day out, oh to live that close to the beach

enjoy

I've been thinking about that. Might be putting too much strain on the transom with launching wheels, also not sure how they would hold up to regular 500mtr journeys. Folding launching trolley is looking favourite and a new one on ebay is about 140.

Do you intend to pull the trolley by hand? I guess you intend to carry the engine and other gear in a car?

1000m is a long way to handball a RIB over the course of a day, half of it when you're less fresh.

I'll try it out with trolley first and see how I get on. If I can't manage it I'll re think it.

Makes sense to try it. I wheel mine around the shore front. I find that it's OK so long as you don't have any kit actually IN the boat (the engine is OK as it is balanced over the transom wheels). Even a fuel tank or ground gear bag makes it a PITA to pull as you are lifting the weight AND pulling the boat (think wheelbarrow).

Guess you got bigger wheelbarrows over there, no way could you get that boat in the ones i have seen here
