Heads battered now haha
Listen to SW boat transport. He's entirely correct, as is the text in the link Blueboy posted.
Kerbweight means nothing. It's down to the MAM of the tow vehicle PLUS the MAM of the trailer-IF the trailer is over 750kg.
Your trailer has no MAM plate. With no MAM plate, 'potential' means nothing.An old '1200' sticker means nothing either. It needs documentation (ie a MAM plate) for the law to act on it.
You either need a 750kg trailer, or a B+E licence. It's feasable and practical IF the current boat on trailer with normal kit onboard weighs under 750kg to effectively convert your trailer to an unbraked 750kg trailer and to stick a 750kg MAM plate on it.
However, it'd be a far better idea to go take the B+E test and then never have to worry about it.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
