So I do hope old style trailers are now fine.

You are not under any obligation to use the outriggers.

I am Currently asking the same questions to the RYA for the exact requirement. I expect there will be a fair bit of boilerplate risk aversion, but when I've distilled it down to the critical facts I'll report back.

Not sure where to post this question; but as I'm after genuine accounts rather than opinions.....

Has anyone towed their boat across the EU since the UK left it?  What was the experience like?

Paperwork for the boat?  Legality of an old-school british road base with "hung on the transom" light board?

Before this madness occurred, trailing to the Javelin Euros in Germany, Holland, France was little different from trailing to Weymouth.  Now I'm thinking of next year's Euros in Holland and just wondering if it's viable.  If I can take my old road base, OK.  If I have to spend 1300 on a new combi, and 500 on an international export/import carnet .....probably not.
