transporting canoe

In the state of KY if you carry canoe in 6’ bed. Is there a maximum distance canoe can overhang tailgate? I know it must be flagged but can’t get answer from DOT.

what size canoe
6 ft bed + 18 inch tailgate so even a 15 ft canoe will be too long anyway to transport more than a couple of miles locally. put it on the roof of the cab with some gunnel pads or get a ladder rack.
