Lightweight 3-3.5m Rib wanted for solo launching

Hi - Looking for a lightweight hard hulled rib/tender that can be launched single handed with jockey/transom wheels. Ideally with a tohatsu 9.8hp 2-stroke.

Would consider slightly larger boat/engine (only 2stroke) as long as can still lift front and lunch on transom wheels.

Based in the south west.

Thanks, Simon.

Avon 3.4

Hello
I have an Avon 3.4 that I fitted with Beachmaster transom wheels, it has a 15hp Mariner 4 stroke engine and is easily launched single handed, I launch it myself for fishing trips from a sandy beach. It is sat on a road trailer and all in good working order. If you are interested I will post some pics details etc.

Dont know if you are still looking, but i have a 3.6m Zodiac Fast Roller plus Mariner 9.8 4hp and launch wheels and other necessities like electric pump.

All man handleable and single launch but boat needs 2 persons if deflated in bag. Im not young and manage the fully laiden boat up and down a long slip ramp (easier with second pair of hands) and 100+ yards.

Only been used a few times, engine not even fully run in - less than 10 hours.

Would consider splitting if boat sold first.
