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.

The rollers are thick and fabric reinforced and are much stronger than I expected. I can not walk across the sharp stones bare foot but rolling a fully loaded f-375 cross our crushed rock road is no problem.
Good to know, thanks Alan. Sounds like the rollers would do the job :thumbsup.
