Had a close look at frame work. Where axle connects the frame curves and it looks like the wheel might have enough clearance after all. Still waiting for wheels to arrive for Brisbane then all will be answered. Should have been here by now probably Christmas rush holding things up.

Wheels arrived and fit on hobie cart perfectly. No problems with the recessed hub. The axle length allows for a hub width of 72mm the hubs on the sea to summit wheels are 68mm. I did make sleeves( bushes) to decrease the diameter of wheels hubs from 25mm down to 12.5mm to fit the Hobie cart axle I was able to get some 25mm diameter round solid plastic and drill a 12.5mm hole through centre to make these. Happy with the wheels definitely better than the foam filled wheeleze wheels that came on the Hobie cart originally

Next stage will be shortening poles and fitting some plastic in pole fittings. To attach bungy chord and line to make easy self loading system with lines going through scupper holes.
