I use these. http://solutions-seller.eu/ks.htmlese.

I have a 4.2m sib with 25hp 2 stroke and get the feeling they are on the limit weight wise!!!

Very neat and nice design. Only used them on good surfaces so not sure how good they would be on beaches.

My friend got a set of removable Beach Master wheels for his boat. I wouldn't hesitate for a small boat to use them, and really like their ingenuity. Not sure they won't sink in the sand with a larger boat though.

Its a bit of a struggle up any kind of incline single handed with the engine on.Thinking of getting or making a dolly for the front with a tow hitch to the car to make life easier. Other thought is a 12v winch........Winter project I think.!!

The standard Zodiac wheels (Zodiac accessories) are rated for this Zoom 350 boat and with the wheels on the boat it can be wheeled along with up to a 20hp engine. The transom is already drilled to accept these wheels, however the brackets need to be fitted
