On a conventional trailer that may be the case, but have a look at any sailing dinghy trailer-every single one of them the board is hanging off the transom of the boat - by design

The main difference between boats and "normal" trailers, is, as I understand it, that wityh a boat on a trailer the hull is considered an integral part of the trailer rather than as the load.

There are some very minor variations in the lighting rules, (e.g. the orange side markers) but the lamp placement relative to the max width of the rolling assy and height off the ground on a conventional RIB on a trailer means the only sensible place to mount said lights on the boat puts them way too high off the road to be legal, hence the bars to hold the board at a legal position (read: height off the road).

There is also the getting the rib off & on the trailer which means making them retract behind the last roller is a useful hull preservation feature too!

It's not just trailers.

I have a friend who rows with a solo scull - she roof-racks it on top of her small hatch......well in excess of 1m overhang both front and rear. Probably not legal form of transporting it

Even with a larger car the overhang would be be 1m+ each end and not legal to roof-rack?

No I think that IS the exception that shiney was wrongly thinking applied to boat trailers.

Would this comply with any/all relevant regulations?

Cheers

Had 3 boats on trailers, all have been like that, never had an issue, however I don't say that it is legal.

But there are specific exemptions for rowing boats overhanging that let you stretch that. So depending on the length of the rowing boat he may not have an issue or may just need markers...
