Twiddling with the trailer board

Trailing a substantial trailer like Aurora’s is more challenging at night. Not being able to see the boat clearly doesn’t help and I’m concerned that other drivers don’t see the trailer or misjudge its size.

To this end, a quick trip to eBay turned up some LED lights (red facing backward and white facing forward) which I fixed to the ends of the trailer board. This shows drivers the width of the trailer and should mean that I can see the back of the trailer in the rear view mirror. It should also mean that oncoming drivers should be able to see the trailer.

I also took the opportunity to mount the board with quick release clips, so I don’t have to mess with bungee cords any more…
