Suprod wheels

Hi
Looking at these for my still in the box Ellington kb350.

Any thoughts on these or others.

Bit worried about fitting. Getting location correct.

Do they come with a template?

Anyone have the same setup?

Thanks

I’m very pleased with my wheels, but I did modify them. I’m not sure if the pictures are in one of my threads or in somebody else’s but I can always let you know how I did it.

I fitted them to my 3.6m boat earlier this year. They were really easily to fit and work very well. There are loads of videos showing you how to fit on YouTube. Just make you buy some marine sealant to stick in the drilled holes before you start the job.

Just donít want to mess it up with the wheels catching the tubes etc.
What info do they come with?

Notebook I really think it would enhance your forum experience to use its search facility in the blue bar near the top.

Put in Suprod to a simple search you get these ten returns...

https://www.rib.net/forum/search.php?searchid=9264781

Then consider Tel1965 says he gave extra info in some thread... so use the advanced search putting in his username in that box and Suprod in the other to see where he's given that info in those four returns...

https://www.rib.net/forum/search.php?searchid=9264776


Terry good to see you here again after a brief gap... decorating all done now?

I use it all the while because someone might say in a thread... "I'm sure Fenlander had that problem with his Suzuki"... there is no way I will remember which thread that might have been in so I use the advanced search to find and link it.

Which wheels Notebook? I have the ones that fold flat against the transom on my Honwave. I like them - it's a neat solution - but I did end up swapping the actual wheels for slightly larger ones, and pneumatic instead of hard. This made a big difference to ease of pulling, especially on rougher ground. I suspected that I might want bigger wheels when I first installed them, so made sure to leave enough clearance. One thing I would say about Suprod in general is that their products are well (over) engineered - the mounting brackets are very solid.

Sup rod fold flat ones. Can’t imagine moving the boat over ground too far.
Good tip on the wheels and fitting. Thanks

See this post for pic with the larger wheels - note that these are still hard wheels, as Suprod sent them by mistake when I ordered pneumatics. They did send the blow up ones after, and I must say I do much prefer them.

Ha! yeah, a few wheels knocking about. A vague idea that I might try and make a front dolly at some point, if I ever get around to it. Otherwise handy to have some spares I suppose..

I don't know if you've ordered your wheels yet, but if you do want larger and/or pneumatic, it might be worth asking beforehand. They seem quite helpful there, maybe they would swap them out and only charge the difference for the bigger ones.

Although I can't fault the wheels (yet - limited use so far), the one thing I didn't really think through was that they stay attached to the boat forever, so you have an effective 5kg or so weight gain for your rolled up boat. Not too much in the grand scheme of things, perhaps, but every little counts and certainly the biggest issue for me with my boat now is moving it around with a bad back once it has been deflated.

Thanks

I got them from the German Titaps shop. They came very quickly.

No. I think the limit is £135 when bringing stuff in from the EU, and the wheels were less than that.

Just double checked should there have been any changes.

You are correct.

Only paid below this on alcohol and cigarettes etc.

Thanks
