Nice little rib was it from Yeoward by any chance?
I would go with launching wheels if you will use them more than just launching you could try something like this TRAILER DOLLY | eBay
Or pick up a road trailer off ebay cheep!

We have a road trailer to suit it, available on brokerage.

Would pay for itself as you'd not have to pay fuel hotel etc and could tow it home, then down to the beach etc. add a jockey wheel and push it down.

Here are some experienced boys having fun in a similar rib. Very good advice on this forum - so watch the vid and then decide. Trouble with any weather forecast is it is not exact!

You think I don't know the danger of surf? The trouble with forecasts is it's not exact, but it's the best thing we have next to mark 1 eyeball and other boaters reporting live conditions. I certainly would not go out in anything less than ideal conditions anyway. My biggest concern is the air temp on ther basis that ideal sea conditions this time of year means they will be very low.

Very nice but I don't have a car. Don't need one because good public transport links here. Also, if I take the rib to the beach to launch, I would then have the problem of what to do with the car and trailer. Very expensive to park on seafront here even if you could find a space. Thanks anyway.
