Wheels on a Bayrunner 420?

I am looking at upgrading to a Bayrunner 420 w/ 40hp and would like to be able to ramp and beach launch with transom wheels.

My understanding is that Zodiac does not make wheels for the Bayrunner but I am curious if anyone else has used wheels on a 4+m RIB. I would only ever need to take it a very short distance up the ramp and on to the yard.

When you say a “Bayrunner” I think this is what we call a Zodiac Pro7?

I think this boat would be too heavy with a 40hp on for even the best Zodiac launching wheels.

Milpro division has some launch wheels for the MK V heavy duty that are rated for 750 lb if I remember correctly.
