That's 305mm over and above the width of the very outside of the trailer. On your trailer I'd imagine that to be the mudguards?
You're right, you do see a lot of boats that look like they're over that limit. However, it may just be a trick of perception and they might not be. Additionally, I'd be surprised (and this is not meant in a derogatory fashion) if many traffic police are aware of it.
You will see a few RIB owners deflate their tubes when towing too. So there's a few conscientious owners amongst us at least....
PS. Corageous - stop it, you'll make me blush!
