Jbkiwi There are several of these boats still being used in Turkey, Norway and other countries it was originally built in 1913 near London. I would assume they move these around for restoration on Lorries. I know there are few smaller versions there about 23 feet this one is 38 feet 1;12 scale truck and trailer are 1;14 scale. this was the only low boy trailer I could find that wasn't over $600 wasn't going to pay $3000 for one Boat would be load with a crane and straps.
Originally bought it to set up for my RNLI Trent Class Life boat 1:16 scale model slipway boat kit i have yet to build. next project on my list. Which they do tow to rescue sight but with a MAN truck several clubs in UK have the same set up.
I do not have plans for putting my truck or trailer in the water, just for making a entrance from car to water area. for my boats for my enjoyment.
Finding Trucks in different scales is very difficult other than 1:14 and 1:10
and thank you for you input.
Added 10 photos of truck trailer and up dates to boat in group of photos today
