If that was the case every sailing dinghy on the road would be illegal. There is something with boats that allows them to "bend" some of the rules officially. Overhangs etc must be treated as per normal, I think it;s lamp mounting & requirements are differnent.

Jeff, you have managed to put into practice a variation on something that hasd been rattling round in my head for a while. Two questions:
1) how does your number plate take to speed humps? (or is it a lot higher off the ground when coupled?)
2) I assume they retract much further in than the rollers? I would be concerned about trashing my bow / toobs on the stainless knife you have created!
Just a couple of thoughts, I have seen Submersible LED lamps with 'plate lighting and - do you need to have the board as far out as the tip of your skeg? Rules allow a 1M overhang.......
