Marking of rear overhang
Between 1m and 2m, ensure the end is clearly visible by attaching a piece of cloth or similar.
Between 2m and 3.05m, a marker board as defined in the Regulations must be fitted and illuminated at night.


.... but now I have also found this !?!?

The lighting board must be wide enough so the outer edge of the rear lights is within 150mm of the outer edge of the boat. This lighting board should be positioned within 1 metre of the end of the total overhang (which is often the mast), or otherwise the end of the overhang would have to be lit with an addition reflector and red lamp. The lighting board should not be more than 1.5 metres off the ground. The trailer also requires at least two amber reflectors down each side.


The overhang, with engine in tilt position is 1.6m though the transom is
I did originally mount the lights/brackets on the end of the sliding bars that were part of the original lighting board so I could slide in and out - but changed them to fixed mount as it removed all vibration and stopped me having to replace blown bulbs as often.

The good news is I have back up lighting and haven't had an issue with lights-out which would cause our friends in blue to stop me >>>

ANy experts out there .... pls

Length (excluding the coupling and drawbar) 7.0 m
Width Maximum 2.3 m


Hmmm does that also mean those of us with boats of say 2.5m width and less than 3.5t GVW, should have bigger cars? Is that the width of the trailer, or the load? Not the clearest of definitions really. Could be written a bit better me thinks.

I have had a couple of brackets made up that will fit in place of the old Trailer board pull out bars

These brackets will each have one of these fitted whic I will then wire up permanently.

I have decided with the number plate to make up a bracket that will hang off the back of the boat.

I think that is trailer width and then you can have another 12" or 305 mm per side

Northen tool lights for BogMonster

Please see some pics of Northen tool lights

I think the term water resistant may be better than water proof I donít think that they would take to constant immersion when launching etc
They are sealed with a foam gasket using two self taping screws and have four 3 mm holes in the recess in the centre of the rear panel for cables which could be filled with silicon after installation and they will take my LED bulbs.

Correct. If your boat overhangs more than 12" over the outside confines of your trailer you need red/white warning triangles at the extremities.
