How do I get a F-Rib 375 across soft sand

Here you can document your Outboards, SIB's and RIB's re-building challenge.
Restoration is satisfying, a great way to learn, and usually a way of getting something special whilst saving money..
Please make a "New Topic" for EACH build.

Thank you for all the good advice on dealing with sand. I am trying to find a local store to look at them so I don't make another mistake.

Just for the record my granddaughter is in a US coastguard approved child vest although it looks like the old blow up arm bands in the picture.

Hi guys

I am ordering 3 Aere Beach rollers from West Marine. It looks like a cost effective way to start addressing the problem of moving a 375 f-rib on soft sand to the water. I hope to try them out next weekend.
