Story to be continued... :-)

Yes, we had a pacer for many years, then a TS16, Boomerang, Sonata 7 and the Noelex. The Boomerang and the Noelex have been the standouts for us. (ed. which has to do with our situation not the other boats. )
But now, new adventures await and do involve a bigger boat...

I can see a keel boat on the horizon! Exciting but a little sad. Will you still be at the Marlay this year?

I'm curious. The specs say that the LOA is 7.77m (e.g.http://noelex.org.au/n25-layout/n25-specifications/). Does that include the rudder, or is it the length of the hull? The reason I ask is that the max length permitted to be parked on a residential street for over 1 hour is 7.5m. Legally, an LOA of 7.77m is 0.27m too long. If the LOA includes the rudder, the solution might be to remove it, or swing it over (and remove the 8.0m mast, and add modify the trailer drawbar).

How often does this actually get policed though?

One of my neighbours copped a several hundred dollar fine ($700 ?) for parking an "oversized" vehicle on the street overnight. What the family had done was to hook up the caravan to the car for an early morning start. Their intent was to not disturb the neighbours in the small hours. Obviously, one of the neighbours (not me) got prickly about it, complained, and it got policed. If the car had not been hooked up to the caravan, it would have been OK. She got let off the fine by explaining the situation.

However, I would not be able to use this defence for a boat that was over 7.5m long.

So, it only needs to be policed once to cost an arm and a leg. Forewarned is forearmed, etc.

Once the council knows you store your overlength boat on the street, they can come around and book it every couple of hours. You might get away with it for years, but then suddenly have to find a new storage site immediately.

Fulton in the US make drawbar hinges in various sizes, in both ungalvanised weld on (when building a trailer) and galvanised bolt on (modifying an existing trailer) versions.
Traralgon trailers stock some sizes some of the time, eg: 3"x3" bolt on. Price is about 0.5 to 3 parking fines...

Interesting discussion on Councils and fines and drawbar mods (thanks for the links, Zeb) and whatnot, but does anyone have the answer to my question? Does the LOA include the rudder?

I think this thread has been hi-jacked from Marg's original post.

I should know as I am a big-time thread hijacker myself!

LOA *should* be hull only.
I could apply a tape measure to Adrian's spare Noelex, which I will drive past this afternoon, for you?
Must remember to put 8m tape measure in car...

Hull only is definitely over 7.5m; I get 7.65m.
The early Mackay trailer has a 4" x 3" drawbar suitable for a Fulton hinge.
Adrian's other Noelex is on a newer trailer with a 4" x 4" drawbar.

Martin, per QLD transport (I rang to find out) their LOA is from the stern to the bow.
As for the council, I'd say if you're splitting hairs to be under 7.5m the drawbar will put you over unless the bow is sitting over the hitch.
As for the nolex specs, I've not a clue... though 25ft is 7.62m anyway...

Pretty sure the LOA is as measured above or close to it. The rudder can be removed easily enough although I never do. And the mast - on my boat anyway - can be within the length of the boat. The foot on the pulpit and the head is inside the transom - slightly diagonally.
And yes, the trailer adds a bit more length to the front end.
Need a very stretchy tape to get under 7.5m :-)

The early Mackay trailer could take a drawbar hinge; ease off the winch line a little and fold the drawbar under the bow. But the hull itself is still very marginally over 7.5m. The mast length is supposed to be 8m.

Yet if you read the numbers on that diagram it's 7.8 m.....

Either way, it doesn't stick out the back of the boat.
