I guess Eric miss your post

But I hope not. The boat was not designed for that and two wheels on that boat only make sense if the boat has a large crew and that's the opposite of its sailing program (solo or short crew).

If you have a tiller and am extension all the winches are near by at reach. With wheels all winches are very far away and out of reach from the skipper.

For having this set up they should have re-positioned the winches.
