Cool! Ta.

Looks like you used some fill flash in that shot.

I did. I have just weighed my boat and trailer combo on a public weighbridge and was shocked to find that the weight is 910kg...My car can only tow 750kg so I cant use the boat at all unless I get another car!
I cant afford another car so I might have to sell the boat and trailer.

Bad luck.

Can't you just sell the trailer and build another lighter one...?

That wont work because the above weight means the boat alone must weigh about 750kg!

Removing the steel reinforcements on and behind the transom will help (the boat was designed to take a 50hp outboard maximum, but the guy who had it before me said it used to have a 90hp on it (!), hence the heavy steel reinforcements) but probably not to the extent of making the boat about 150kg lighter, which it what it would need to be.

I might be able to borrow my ex's Ford Focus...that can tow 1200kg braked. Of course I will need to buy and fit a towbar to her car first, and because it needs to be a type approved towbar that probably wont be cheap.
