Oregon Boat Transport
Oregon Boat Transporters and Haulers generally have it pretty easy when transiting the I-5 corridor with oversize vessels. It can become a little dicey when operating along the Oregon Coast. This easily overcome with the use of escorts and pole cars when transporting boats along the Oregon Coastline.
Portland Oregon is the major boating community. Most of the boatyards capable of loading and unloading boats for transport and hauling are in the vicinity of Portland. Boaters find the boatyards along US30 west of Portland to be easier to contend with and enjoy savings on their yard bill!
- The hours of operation for transporters in Oregon are Monday through Saturday.
- Oregon DOT regulates the operating hours to a half hour after sunrise and a half hour prior to sunset when moving any oversize boat.
- Permits are required for all oversize boats when being transported. Oversize being any vessel exceeding 8.6 wide and over 13.6 tall when loaded.
- A escort vehicle is required when the load exceeds 14 feet wide and 14 feet tall when loaded on the transport trailer. When over hight a pole car is needed for safety.
