Hi,

 

We are going to put transom wheels on the dinghy for launching. Its a 3.2 Southern Pacific inflatable.

 

Seems to be a few varieties out there. Anyone want recommend some. Dont want anything that rusts.

 

Need to still be able to get outboard on.

 

Cheers,

Just wondering what the KIZO MARINE Ultimate Dinghy Wheels as used by OC Tenders would be like?

The acid test of any dinghy wheel is how they behave in soft sand - the kind you can walk on ok and want to go ashore and pull the dinghy + o/b up the beach. To cope with that iou need a solid wheel - the ones in your pics look attractive cos they’re wide but they will sink into soft sand and fill up and bog down. A solid pneumatic tyre is the best option for dealing with that. My Beachmasters often have to carry a 2.8m dinghy with 15hp o/b plus fuel tank and other crap up a soft sand beach and cope far better than any other wheels I’ve had.
