I have the trailer board on home made adjustable bars which slide in and out of the end of the trailer Chassis(like Indespensions but 1/10th of the cost). I did consider making some very long ones but realised they would be so long that they would bounce up and down quite a bit.

One can be seen in the image below painted Yellow.
I slide them in for launching, but as you can see, even to get the board by the Transom they are quite long.

Agreed, in theory if the board was behind the prop you wouldn't need a bag.

Lighting Board

Hi, I thought the main reason for the bag was for personnel protection particularly pedestrian public, from racing sharp props and skegs. Hi Viz alerting their eyes to the obstical !

In practical terms that's it's main use, but it is also a legal rquirement to have anything sticking out the back of a vehicle or trailer marked.

Agreed .The bigger the boat the less practical extended lightboards are,even the one on our 5m trailer grounds sometimes when reversing up a slope.
Just out of interest are there two more wheel clamps on the other side too?
Where do you holiday, Liverpool?

Nope, just the two on that side

I used to use just one, lost the keys for it whilst it was off, so went out and brought another one, then found the keys for the first one

I figured that seeing as I had two I'd use them as it would be better than one.

Lightboards technically should be attached to the trailer not the load.

If you have the extension bars for your lightboard you avoid having to comply the rules about over hanging loads.

Benefits of being old:-
You can tow pretty much anything on your car licence
You can insure any car you fancy
Old birds look fit,their daughters look extremely fit
'cos you've been grafting for longer than everyone else has been alive you're generally considered to be loaded
When you bought your first house it cost less than the car that your currently driving
You remember when you didn't know how much petrol was
When you talk to a fit young girlie in a bar you ask her mums name in case you're her dad
You quite fancy getting a Harley
etc

Errr thus making every sailing dinghy on a road trailer illegal.....

I can't quote the rules verbatim, but there is a clause that essentially says if it's impractical to fix the lights to the trailer, you can fix them to the load (but they still have to be legal with regard to positioning & what they show).

I'm sure someone will be along soon with the actual wording.
