How many of you got picked up this holiday weekend for pulling your, more than 8.5ft boat to the water? I did. I was stopped Friday afternoon by a trooper just after turning off the Seward Highway toward the tunnel. He waved another guy over that was going around me as well. He was sitting there just to nail wide-load boat trailers as they were going to Whittier.
I thought I would be OK on Friday, but, they started the holiday at Friday noon. They need to change this. My boat is 9.5ft and a 9-10ft boat pulls down the road just a easy as an 8.5ft boat. I can see the need for construction equipment and materials or something that requires slower speeds or other accomadations that could lead to hazardous situations in heavy traffic. It seems like recreational boaters are caught in the middle here.
