Link for best transom wheels

Post by BenGTS » 30 Apr 2018, 09:37

Hi, I am looking at fitting transom wheels to my excel 3.65m boat. After reading the posts on here, there seem to be lots of transom wheels that are rubbish and fall apart. Does anyone have a link for a good set please? The boat has an aluminium floor and 20hp engine so will be heavy but I do have a trailer and a launch trailer but would like some transom wheels so I can 'explore' beaches etc when I'm out.

Hi Ben,
Welcome to the forum :thumbsup

Looking on the excel website they have three sets listed depending on the length and style you want.
All ranging from £65- to £150
Here’s a link

And the image.

There’s Kentucky about and mostly they’re fine, the ones that seem to be an issue are the cranked style that Honwave use , they need to be hooked to go around the trim tabs that form part of the hull.

Does your boat have trim tabs or is it a straight down transom without anything protruding ?

Hi, this is the transom and pics of my boat...

This is my first boat, I have had this since November and have yet to use it. Hoping to take it out next week ☺️
