You have to be a little bit of a handyman, because these are not compatible right out of the box with all Saturns. It sure wasn’t with my catamaran.
First, you have to cut one of the bottom corners on each one, because it would overlay the PVC which is glued to the transom. You don’t want to drill into the PVC, and even if you did, the bracket won’t sit flush.
If you move them closer to the center of the transom so they don’t overlay the PVC, they’re way too close together!
So you butt the bracket to the edge of the PVC, mark that corner you have to chop off with an angle grinder, chop it off, and drill another mounting hole. What you chopped off has one of the four mounting holes.
In addition, you can’t mount them wheels out as shown here on many boats! The pontoons block them! So you have to flip the mounting so the wheels point in.

We purchased these launching wheels for a new 12' Saturn boat. The packaging was excellent, as well as the design and price. We are waiting for the new boat to arrive and the wheels will make launching much easier.

I registered the boat on Friday and took her out on the Chesapeake Bay for the first time on Saturday. Feel free to share the attached pictures. The boat was a pleasure to operate and the wheels are a great addition that allow me to take take the boat out by myself. Thanks for a great product and all the helpful communications over the last few weeks, and years since I am a return customer having just recently upgraded from the SD260 that I bought from you in 2006.
