I am sure this topic has been covered ad-in-nausim but since this is my first post I am hoping for a little leeway. Has anyone posted do-it-yourself instructions for a good design set of beach wheels? I have about 200 feet of deep sand to cross when taking my Getaway out. Thank you for all replies.

We use the cat trax with ballon tires (at about 5psi so they don't sink into the sand). Even though the boat is heavy, we can get it the 100 yards or so with two people (taking a break now and again). It seems to work best for us tying off at the stays and pulling/lifting from the front cross bar, where 16's seem to push from the back....

Thank you for your reply. I broke down and bought a set of Cat Trax. I am sure my back will be happy :)
