What exactly does the law say on this matter? I always tow with the engine down - less load on the transom - and the prop is therefore behind the lighting board (looking from the back).

Richard,

The overhang is measured from your light board. If your light board is behind the prop you don't need to mark it at all.

Cheers,

I was starting to think there was a special requirement for engines.

I know I'm fussy, but after having the Ribeye one with a nice round bit over the prop itself, I wanted to keep to a similar design.

Anyone any ideas where I can buy one?
Hi Steve .... i managed to tear mine too ....soon after getting the boat . .... However my Mrs is a dab hand on the sewing machine and its now as good as new ...... Incidentally .... how much did Ribeye want for a new one ?

Well, next time you're in Cowes, your lovely wife has herself a little job then

Ribeye want 25, so I'll probably just get one of theirs if there's nothing suitable at the boat show.
