Just so you know, that is (probably) technically illegal. Conclusion seems to be lights should be on the trailer not the load. They are probably too high on the aframe also. Whether anyone official understands that or cares is a different matter. What may be more an issue is if you want to tow the trailer somewhere without the boat..
