Towing an Irwin 10/4 wide load

Jul 30, 2019
Seaward 25 777 Fort St. James
Looking at a 10/4 to buy. Before seriously considering it I want to find out how much hassle there would be in towing. Mainly from a constabulary point of view. I would be moving the boat a couple of of times a year between Alberta and BC. Is all I need 1. Flags and corner lights; 2. Oversize Load sign; 3. Permit, maybe annual permit, from one province, or maybe one from each? At 10'4" beam, well, that is pretty close to 10'. Right?

I'd appreciate answers from people who actually DO this, because frankly I can Google it myself and get a dozen different theoretical answers!

Thanks in advance for your help.
