I figured since it was almost spring and time to get boats out that its time to bring all these questions back to up for all of us who got new boats over the summer. I will ask my questions but other should feel free to ask as well.
My boat is 9'6" wide so I need a permit to move it on the highway. I also need "oversize" or "wideload" signs and a beacon. My questions is about the trailer. The bunks are a bit wider than the actual boat. Do I have to list the width of the trailer on the permit or the width of the load (the boat)? What do they measure when I got thru the Whitter tunnel? If its the bunks I can take them off or adjust them down and in so they don't stick out farther than the boat width. I am sure that with my bunks in there current position my tralier is wider than 10 ft and I think that causes grief at the Whitter tunnel and way more $$.
On a side note when I got the permit to bring my boat home the permit person gave me a great hint. When you fill out the license number on the permit, put your trailer's plate number. That way the permit is valid for whatever truck is towing that trailer. If you put your trucks license plate number the permit is only good for your truck. I have two trucks that can pull my boat and I don't want to buy two permits.
