I actually thought I'd read the opposite on this forum but I guess you shouldn't believe everything you read on forums
My friend was fined for this very thing, not a boat trailer though, was a completely empty ifor Williams trailer behind his astra car. Only doing someone a favour and got fined for it. I think he said was circa £300 but I maybe wrong, was a while ago he told me. BTW it was in largs so pretty close to home!
Didn't go to weight bridge or anything, was done on the trailer plated gvw and car gvw.
