If youíve got launch wheels on the transom I donít see the advantage of this as most trolleys folk use to good effect have a front set of wheels as well to take the strain of the weights off the carrying hand. More of a trundle truck than trolley.

If no launch wheels then it looks ok but with a SIB Iíd be worried about the small feet pressing into a high pressure floor. Modding it with carpeted planks to support the whole weight might help.

I have a Honwave T38 and it has the protruding high pressure tabs and while there are a set of very boingy launch wheels that you can buy they are expensive and I dont think many people like them. I think this could be a cheap alternative

Depends how much weight you are carrying, if you do use it then protect the air floor vs wooden supports. At that end you will have outboard.

I had a Honwave 3.2 with HD launch wheels, didnít find them boingy. In fact they took a Merc 15hp t/s and 22L of fuel plus all the other stuff.

Weight issue as others have found is then in the front D handle if carrying all that along for more than 50m.

Maybe you could mod this trolly with a front wheel set.

A typo or just fair warning?

The sib could be positioned so that the wheels are a fulcrum taking most of the weight off the lifting handle something you cant do with launching wheels
