Are you going to have to get a permit every time you use it? Or just sneak around or??

You could trailer them deflated, get an overwidth permit, or just go and hope you don't get pulled over...

Willard is 9'0, so is a H733. Otec's are 9'6

In CA, anything over 8'6 needs a permit. ~$95/yr. If it's under 10'0, you never need a pilot car(s). I believe over 10'0 you start getting into the range for needing single use permits which add up if you have to get one every time you take the boat out.

Last time I got my trailer serviced, a guy was picking up his 42' x 12' boat on a triple axle aluminum (he wanted to keep weight down) and he just said oversized load banners front & rear, and keep off the road 5-9AM and 4P-7P for restrictions. He didn't mention a single use permit or not.

I don't think we have annual overwidth permits. They are single use up here and $10 each (good for 3 days). No pilot car required for 9ft width.

Oops, ncp is right. 9' on the Willard. Add in the trailer guides and it's 9'6", unless I take them off which is not a bad idea.

I hadn't given it much thought yet, been too busy trying to make it float! Pay the fee, let out a little air, or roll the dice, either option would work. Chance of a cop pulling me over for being 6" over limit...very slim I assume.

I've been considering selling my 15.5ft ali RIB for a Willard w diesel stern drive. So the whole "how to I get it to the boat ramp" issue is on my mind. WA state ferries can take vehicles >8.5ft wide, but only on certain sailings, ditto BC ferries. Neither are likely to ignore the extra 6"+

letting air out of the tubes will solve the problem. It doesn't even take that much out to slim down some.

Does the fabric end up flopping in the wind?
