Oversize beam problem in Oz
Hi guys n gals,
I've got a strange problem in that I have purchased a 6.0m RIB which has a beam of 2.56m and in Australia if your boat is over 2.5m there is a long list of requirements for towing the oversized boat. For example, it needs 2 OVERSIZE signs which are rigid and are 1.2m wide, one facing forward and one back, I need an amber warning light, amber lights along the sides of the boat every 2m, red lights at the back. A load or horse doo doo if you ask me but I am considering deflating one side of the boats tubing before hitting the road to reduce the width by 6cm so it comes in at 2.5m so I don't have issues and insurance problems if an accident occurred and they said I was not compliant.
If this is a good approach in the forums opinion, how should I most efficiently deflate the tube and then inflate when about to use. For example, what is the best hardware options to get this done quickly as I don't want to spend 30 mins waiting for deflation/inflation every time I want to take it out.
Thanks for your ideas everyone.
