What are you on about now???

That weight was with the trailer which weighs about 1000kgs on it's own - it's a triple axle job. The boat is actually 8.8m long and 2.9m wide - I measured it to be sure!!! Of course in the harbour it's an 8m......

I would imagine codders, that 2.9 wide boat on a twoed trailer is on the border of being illegal in the UK. I understand that the max , allowed wideth for a towed caravan in the UK is 2.3 meters and an HGV is 2.5.
I may be wrong as have not kept up with my UK regs for some time now.. but please enlighten.
Dont forget if you go commercial, you will need a tachograph and will be limited to driver's hours and regs. and speed.

Why do you need a three wheel trailer- that I would have thought unnecessary?. You could have two axles taking 1500 kgs each and loose an axle at 200 kgs?? The boat seems overtly heavy??. Mine is 9 meters,cabin,seats ,2*50galllon tanks , box on the front, 2*250 yams and
yet weights with 500 liters, 2200 kgs. train weight is 2800 kgs , yet is stable as heaven even at 80 mph.

Anyway to contradict such a renown expert-- you know where you can put your Raymarine???????????

What I want to know GED is how you managed to get a satellite signal inside Ians workshop

I have the 2010c chart plotter and colour sounder very easy to use I would think the 3010c would be better as it has a TFT full VGA screen which the 2010 does not have

As I understand it 2.3/2.55m is the maximum width of a trailer on UK roads, but 2.9m is the maximum width of the load without prior approval.

Attached codship with 3 dims highlighted: width of load (yellow), width of trailer (red), internal beam (magenta) - the latter is 1.8m according to prosport.

I did not NEED a 3 axle trailer - as I was very kindly lent one by John Price of Quinquari I was not going to argue. As a plus point the outfit was SO stable and easy to tow I will be buying exactly the same sort of trailer - the extra security is well worth having. You could have 2 punctures and just take the wheels off!!!

Not having a go at you Codders- but would like to see you go thru the Blackwall tunnel???? You would need an escort ,they would effectively have to close the tunnel to other users while MS.Codship passes... Still cant understand such a broad beam at the back??
Was that standard from Prosport?? or ru planning to sling 3 engines on the back??

It IS 2.9m so no probs!!! Yup boat is standard Prosport. Makes it very stable - tubes just about kiss the water at rest with full tanks. As soon as you are on the plane they are clear.

Don't want to put 2 engines on the back - never mind 3 - it is so well balanced for wave jumping - lands nice and level. May invest in a 300hp at some stage though!!!
