Yeah great idea Manos, let's all go and have a fiddle with ourselves instead of making sure we've got our boats safe and legal for towing.

Might end up considerably poorer due to a hefty fine, may even end up wiping out a considerable number of vehicles in an accident on the motorway, but we'll sure as hell feel all the better for having a quick play won't we.

When I bought my 5.5 Extreme from Humber, I asked for an unbraked trailer on the basis that all I wantwed it for was as a launching trolley, and that the towing vehicle weighed in at over 2.25 tonnes.

They did a load of calculating, accounted for everything from the full tank to anchors, warps, chains, me, the family, my 3.3hp 2stroke auxiliary etc and REFUSED!! I ended up with a very good Bramber trailer with brakes, rated at 950Kg.

It WOULD have been safe without brakes, and a lot less hassle with washing off, but Humber did act very responsibly.
