Thought about cutting the board into sections,

Connect the sections together using a stainless curtain poll.
Two sections will be more than enough- then you can just hinge it. To be legal you can only tow max 2.3m, so a 2m board will be long enough. Fold in half & it'll fit in any car boot.
Another thing I have done is to chop the cable at the length it takes to go up to and take a a turn round the frame pole - then means you're not having to wrestle with 6+ yards of wet, manky cable (from the road, not the launch!) but keeps the inline socket out of harms way. If you don't have a frame, cut it so the plug is just on the floor under the transom - gravity will be ebnough to hold it - worked a treat on my old SR4.
