440 & 450 tender size

Monte she is a great tender, to lighten the load l remove the fuel tank whilst sailing.

Your right she is a little heavy to drag up a beach.

I purchased her in Oz and shipped it to Singapore.

Re: 440 & 450 tender size

We have a 450 and we are currently cruising S. Pacific. Our previous dinghy was an AB 11AL with 20hp 4-sroke Honda and seat/console. Great dinghy and it fit fine between the huls. The weight for the davit was OK also. But, it was way too heavy to drag up the beach or deal with the changing tides...

We replaced it with an AB 10AL and 15hp 2-stroke tiller. Still lots of room and, with the wheels, we can drag it almost everywhere.

I prefer aluminum hull dinghies.

Re: 440 & 450 tender size

Uh yeah tides! We forget those in the med and Caribbean. I guess it makes a difference where you leave your dinghy when you go ashore. If you dont drag it up the beach enough, or expect it to be floating in the shallows after a hike. Maybe not...

440 & 450 tender size

Has anyone fitted a pair of these to their tender and if so how effective are they?

Re: 440 & 450 tender size

The Cray Boat is on a mooring in the river
We had this tender for 3 or 4 years with the wheels on the back.
It was light but had a 15hp motor.
we pulled it up the beach all the time with no problems as the wheels folded in under the boat moving the pivot point forward making it nice and balanced to pull.
Could of been a lot heaver and still manageable.
Ill se if I can find another picture.

Re: 440 & 450 tender size

See how in this photo the wheels bend outwards.
When folded down they came in and under the hull shifting the pivot point.
Worked well making it light.

Thanks Sirius 42 their video looks like it would also take a reasonable weight.

Did you have the detachable system and if so is it as easy as it seems?

Re: 440 & 450 tender size

Hi Wayne,

Yes I fitted the beachmaster wheels to our standard Highfield L450 dinghy a few years ago. They work very well and on most beaches I can drag the dinghy with the 20hp motor up the beach. I found I needed to attach a strong handle to the bow at the painter attachment point as the leather handle was starting to pull out.

Cheers, Dave
Magique

Re: 440 & 450 tender size

I bought these wheels: Danard Marine Products - Dinghy Wheels

Simple design that works.

Re: 440 & 450 tender size

Your Brig dinghy looks very sexy Wayne 👍. I guess it will need fairly sizeable wheels to support the weight in softer sand? Cheers.

Re: 440 & 450 tender size

Hi there. We're from WA as well and have a L450. We have a approx. 3.7m RIB with 20HP 4 stroke which goes really well with a family of 4. I would hate to have a heavier boat, we can pull this one up by hand without using the winch which takes less than 20 seconds. If you had to use the single winch it would take 5 to 10 min and we'd be far less likely to take it out of the water every night.
