I don't think the AA has a length restriction. Pretty sure everyone else has.
Green Flag and RAC certainly both have length restrictions.

I contacted the RYA about this and they in researched it. It does look like the AA are the only answer.

The 7 meter length restriction is likely in place because that's the legal length for on road towing up to 3500kg (Kinda covers 'normal' road trailers).

Mr Ashtonmarine sells trailers so I'm guessing he knows that and he's looking for a commercial trailer recovery service.

I asked the AA the exact same question...and he assured me with The Top insurance (which I get free...or at least a perc from a select Bank account) they would defiantly ALWAYS make sure that they'd get you and your passengers plus Boat/Trailer to you're destination.

Good to know when you travel/tow from Somerset to the Highlands Pretty often
This was a couple of years ago so might be worth checking again I suppose.

I have the same select bank account Maxi although I'm at least 20 quid behind you I also got the same reply from the AA last time I contacted them. Good to know
