The Northwest Experience

A Solution for Those Who’ve Mocked You by Jim Farrell This writer has long written in my sailing adventures of my well, how do I say it, inability to catch salt water fish? I’ve never had a problem with the type of fish that swim in fresh water, but those who choose to dwell in a saltine solution seem to mock every effort that I make to lure them unto my table via fish line. Oh, I’m rather apt at scrounging them from Gil Netters or other fisher types to may have gone a little over their limit as I question them how they do it. Maybe they just take pity on me when they look at the look of disappointment on the face of my partner in life. I’m not saying that I’m totally inept, for I’ve been lucky to catch a halibut while cruising in Glacier Bay five years ago and once I'd learned to untie the entrance doors to the crab pot, crab have a definite fear of my talents. I’ve even caught a jack salmon while trolling for tuna sailing up the Washington coast and I don’t even want to talk about my ‘just’ before season opening at buoy 10 experience when I read the fishing synopsis wrong. This year on our way up to Alaska my

thoughtful wife decided to give me another chance for me to shine in her eyes and allowed me to spend the $100.00 plus for a salt water license while going through Canada. Strong winds, and the many storms we encountered didn’t help my fishing skills but I'd make up for my fishing inabilities via the ever faithful crab pot dropped in the water as we sought safe shelters. Once we got to Ketchikan she’d had enough and took the bull by the horn, so to speak, then decided that we both should go on a guided fish boat. Not that I couldn’t have gone by myself but I think that she wanted to make sure that I’d learn enough to fill the freezer on the boat. Or, maybe she really wanted to go herself and learn the correct way to land the slippery morsels. I kept trying to tell her that if we had the proper equipment (yep, I’m the right tool for the right job guy) like a fish finder and downrigger I could fill the freezer myself. Nope, she’d have none of that. If you decide to go on a guided fish trip at the last minute, well, Ketchikan is the right place. The next question is how to find the right fishing guide. Our extensive search consisted of talking to a young man on a bus to

Yep, look at what I drug in proving even the most inexperienced fisherman can catch something with the right guide.

downtown from Bar Harbor who worked at the Fish Pirate’s Saloon and Restaurant and had grown up in Ketchikan. He told us to check at the Alaska Fish House because they had guides. Big question came to my mind of why would we go to a restaurant to find a fish guide with a boat?

We located the Alaska Fish House ( and walked in. Inside we found chaos as there were three cruise ships docked just down continued on page 4

Maritime Heritage Festival: Beautiful Weather Makes a Another Great Year in St. Helens The Sixth Annual Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Maritime Heritage Festival which occurred July 2526, 2014 in Old Town St. Helens, Oregon. The festival brought together great crowds over two days of beautiful weather and of course gorgeous boats. A favorite summer festival also boasted live music concerts of regional bands, kids boat building, Portland Water Spectacular Waterskiing Show and tours of the mighty Sternwheeler PORTLAND and World War II treasure PT658. The culmination of the Maritime Festival included an incredible salmon dinner hosted by the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and wowed by a WWII style USO Show staring Johnny Martin and his Orchestra. The beautiful evening ended with the launch of hundreds of Sky Lanterns as a WWII remembrance. The 2015 Maritime Heritage Festival will host a “Monk Reunion” to join scores of other historic vessels such as Chris Craft and Grand Banks. The festival will honor boats designed by premier Northwest naval architect Ed Monk Sr. Monk

Warrenton Boatyard’s Dave Salmi Joins Rocky Pointe Crew A big welcome to Dave Salmi, who has joined the team at The Rocky Pointe. Boatyard as the new general manager. Dave joins us from The Warrenton Boatyard—his family’s business started by his father and grandfather in the 1940’s. Dave grew up learning the skills of a craftsman in the boat repair business from a young age. In 1990 at age 23, Dave and his two brothers, Steve and Charles, bought the business from their father. Since that time, Dave has continued to refine his skills while being part owner, manager and craftsman. Dave brings his family’s deep roots for quality boat repair emphasized by a high level of workmanship and owner satisfaction to Rocky Pointe Boatyard. Dave is looking forward to meeting returning customers as well as new customers as he leads the Rocky Pointe Boatyard team into the future.

Dave Salmi and Jason Whitaker Capetown, South Africa in a couple months to be with his kids. Once back in Capetown, Jason plans to join one of the large boat building companies as a project manager bringing with him the extensive experience and superior customer service (and cheerful smile) that he offered at Rocky Pointe for over four years. Jason’s

plan is to come back to the US in a few years and we may all see him again either fishing or in the boatyard. “I will miss all of our wonderful staff, and customers as well as all the people in the Portland boating community. Thank you for making me feel so at home,” he said. Bon voyage Jason. Thank you and the best of luck.

Visit PT 658 with Willamette Jet Boats Andy Moss of Willamette Jet Boats has been a supporter of the PT 658 for many years. He has always made a point of bringing boat loads of passengers to view the PT 658 at its berth. I can recall many work days when we were dry docked and he and his passengers would stop by to view the boat. His passengers were pleased to see this tribute to WWII Vets. Now that we are back in the water, Andy has come up with a very special way to see the only PT boat in the world restored to WWII specs. He is offering a jet boat ride that includes a tour of the PT658, dinner at our site, and a chance to talk with our crew. This is a “bucket list” item for any wood boat enthusiast. We have everything ready for visitors. We have constructed a new entry and viewing platform and new ramp down to the deck and hull level. Visitors can walk

The Northwest Experience...continued from page 1 the street with many of their thousands of passengers vying for seating in the restored waterfront restaurant. We elbowed our way to the counter and told the gal there that we had heard that they had a fishing guide, prompted her to call for the manager Josh, who appeared out of the chaos then took us past the cruise passengers to a private dining room. He asked if we wanted coffee as we waited for the owner Chuck Slagle to talk with us. While waiting, someone from the kitchen brought us a plate of lightly breaded halibut pieces that melted in our mouth and the cutoff ends of their smoked salmon cornbread. Chuck not only owns the restaurant but has a large family owned fish guide service, Baranof Fishing Excursions, and turned us over to his daughter-in-law, Kayleigh

who tailored a trip that possibility could teach me to catch something. We were paired with an older couple from Minnesota and it turned out, a very enthusiastic guide, Chris Baldwin. Chris, 31 years old and very passionate about fishing, this being his third year guiding in Alaska and after a quick briefing we rocketed south out of Ketchikan heading back into waters off Duke Island that Becky and I had just crossed two days previous, of course without me fishing due to another gale, at least that’s my excuse. I paid close attention to the way he cut the herring and used the heads to smear ‘scent’ on the flasher and yep, there is was, the trusty fish finder showing a ‘bait ball.’ Poles bent as the haul came over the rail and Chris would jump from one pole to help and then another one would bend as it was hit.

North Bar Harbor the view from the stern of “Autumn Daze.” Chris then asked me if I’d mind steering the boat while he helped the others land their fish. Becky, whose sole purpose was to have me learn to fish was all smiles as she brought in the silvers, then the halibut along with the rockfish. Every so often she’d yell for me to come back and reel in another one. I think that she would just get tired of reeling a halibut up from 175' below and needed a rest. Did I mention that Chris our guide was a little excited about fishing? As it turned out our 6 hour fishing trip turned into 11 hours as Chris helped haul in the fish and I’d navigate to the waters he directed me to. When we got back, Chris filleted out Becky’s catch, and a couple that I’d landed myself then gave us a boat ride back to our boat in North Bar Harbor late that evening. We couldn’t have had a better rec-

Seattle’s Lake Union Boats Afloat Show September 10-14 Seattle’s 36th annual Lake Union Boats Afloat Show will get underway this year on Wednesday September 10th through Sunday 14th. It brings you all the best of boating in one place on beautiful South Lake Union, in sunny September. The show is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekends.

More boats, more styles At the show you’ll find there’s a boat for every budget, activity and lifestyle. From sport boats to sailboats, trawlers to mega yachts and everything in between, the West Coast’s largest floating boat show has it all. More than 50 distinct brands of yachts and brokers and dealers from Washington, Oregon, California, Florida and British Columbia, Canada will display their boats. More than four dozen shore side exhibitors with professional services from marine finance and insurance to electronics, marinas, shipping, yacht linens and yacht maintenance will also exhibit at the show.

Boats of Note: Power Aspen Power Catamarans. Aspen will be displaying the C100 32-foot production boat that recently completed a circumnavigation of Vancouver Island non-stop, unrefueled. The father/son Aspen team completed the 641-mile

challenge in 47 hours, 5 minutes, on 267 gallons (1,009 liters) of fuel. The boat averaged 13.61 knots using a very miserly 5.6 gallons per hour at cruise speed for the trip. Coastal Craft Boats will be debuting their newest and largest yacht, the 65' Concord. “It’s only 65 feet long but from a distance it looks more like a 100-footer. Combine that with its many luxury features, aluminum construction, high performance and its advanced technology, the Concord is unlike anything in its size range and deserves designation as a mini-mega yacht,” according to Peter Robson of “Pacific Yachting” magazine. Stan Miller Yachts in Seattle (, formerly Grand Banks Northwest, will be showing the Grand Banks 43 Heritage EU which features a roomy two stateroom, two head layout, with an expanded galley and more storage over her predecessor. A nifty utility room in the center of the boat boasts a dedicated freezer and impressive storage space, and is plumbed for a combo washer/dryer. Hampton Yacht Group will have a Maritimo M50 and an Endurance 658 on display. The M50 is the first full beam master stateroom model for Maritimo with the less costly straight drive system verses the Pod drives found on

other boats. This gives better performance and less cost of upkeep. The E658 offers a wide 18' beam with four staterooms, four heads and full beam master suite. This is a US debut for the boat. Islands Marine Center will be showing an Ocean Sport Legacy 26. The Legacy 26 will be offered with gas or diesel power packages, including both sterndrive and outboard options. The vessel is highly customizable and can be built to suit the needs of cruisers and anglers alike. Kadey Krogan will have a 48'AE (Advanced Ergonomics) on display. This particular boat was delivered this year to an owner who has published two cookbooks based on her cruising and culinary expertise. The expanded galley includes a four-burner Viking range and a nearly floor-to-ceiling pantry—a gourmet cook’s dream. Also on display will be a Krogen 44' AE. The new Krogen 44' AE and has more than 50 ergonomic and technical changes that differentiate her predecessor, the Krogen 44. Including a full walk-thru cockpit boarding doors, walk-in engine room access and an available companion seat next to the helm chair on the flybridge.

It’s Time! Twenty Fives Ago About this time 25 years back I walked into the office of Jim Canton and asked if I Hobart Manns might be this paper’s outdoor writer? Much to my surprise he said yes. Now the time has come for this old Oregon native to pass the torch to someone else. During those years, the one thing that has impressed me most is that the editorial staff has never asked, or told me what to say or write about. What a blessing for a writer to not have to be restrained in any fashion. Thank you Freshwater News for years of real freedom. It is with great pleasure that I thank all of you who read and shared my thoughts over this time. To you who may not always share my views I'm flattered for that also, as it made you think. From time to time in the future I may submit a guest article. How ever the time has come to exit stage left with one last bow and a heart felt thank you. I will miss the joy of sharing. So, I’ll leave you with this last opinion for you all to think about...


“It is with great pleasure that I thank all of you who read and shared my thoughts over this time. To you who may not always share my views I’m flattered for that also, as it made you think.” Warm Water Fish One more time I would like to take a moment to congratulate the Oregon Department for Fish and Wildlife, the elected folks in the state government who vote on the budget for the department, and our governor who leads them all. How proud you must be to continue being the number one ranked state in the nation for not supporting warm water fish. No other state with warm water fish spends less on their management than Oregon. Except Alaska possibly and they support a trophy Northern Pike fishery in the Yukon. Oregon, which some years back had four or more biologists in the field managing these fish and now has only one and he covers the whole state. His duties also include setting up the group fish-

ing programs around the state. A full time job for most personnel. With 25 to 30 percent of all anglers in the state fishing for warm water fish at some point each year these fish need better management than the worst in the country. The amount spent on warm water fish is less than one tenth of one percent of our license fee. There are about twenty plus cold water bio’s working around the state compared to what amounts to about a half a person on warm water projects. The state holds fisheries that rank in the top ten best in the country but the state does not wish to sell these opportunities to those who might travel to fish them. We have no hatchery programs for warm water fish and no planting programs. I take that anglers

Hobart with one more, but probably not his last salmon.

with department approval, move fish from one body of water to another. In past years that amounted to fish ending up in irrigation ditches for fertilizer. The state now charges an extra fee for salmon angling to help the commercial fishing industry and better salmon management. The state is adamant that no

dedicated funding be allowed for warm water fish. How come anglers are not allowed to pay for better resource management? I hope the money saved by not spending it to run a better warm water program helps worthy programs like PERS and Cover Oregon.

Fishing Far From the Crowds on the High Lakes by Gleb Velikanov Imagine having hiked into a choice fishing area, with comforts of your tent steps away, far from the crowds, seemingly on another planet. Imagine campfire coals glowing in the dark while a couple of freshly-caught trout are sizzling in a frying pan, begging to be eaten. To reach such a place, you do not have to travel to some far corner of Idaho or Montana, just trek over to Oregon’s high lakes, some of which are within an hour or two’s drive of Portland. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife actively promotes backcountry fishing, hoping to attract sportsmen and women to remote areas. According to Scott Patterson, ODFW’s Fish Propagation Manager, the department has been stocking these high lakes for about 50 years, hauling fish in by foot or by packhorse. “On odd years, we release approximately 350,000 fish in the high mountain lakes to create recreational opportunities,” said Patterson. These days, helicopters carry a custom-made shuttle, with 30 individual canisters, each holding a few gallons of water and up to 1000 fingerlings of brook, cutthroat or rainbow trout. Canisters open individually by remote control, while the helicopter hovers over a lake. The young fish used are said to have a better chance of enduring the 50-100 foot fall, compared to adult fish. In this way, barren lakes receive a trout population capable of surviving for three to five years. Most of these lakes are accessible only by trail; to fish there, you have to hike in! So this is a trip that combines fishing with backpacking, carrying all your food and gear to set up camp. It's worth the effort because a remote, recently-stocked lake means less competition and more chances of hooking a fish.

Planning A good place to start your planning is the trout stocking schedule on ODFW’s website

( hing/trout_stocking_schedules/). Here, department staff maintain a database of all stocked lakes in the state, divided into five geographic zones, listing the date fish were released, their approximate size and numbers. A handy link to a Google-based map helps find the desired lake. From there, you can make an educated guess as to which lake to choose, considering such how recently the lake was stocked, personal experience with fishing for trout, and the lake's proximity to access roads. There is a plethora of available information, found in online forums and websites, guide books, newspapers and magazines. Figuring out the best trail to access the lake can be done using a guidebook and a paper map, or any type of online guide, database or navigational website or smartphone app. There are many options: long-distance or short, day hike, overnight, or a multiple day trip. For example, the ODFW lists Averill Lake as last stocked in 2011, with 1400 brook trout. A quick search on reveals that this is located in the Mt. Hood National Forest and is “a clear and pleasant lake surrounded by many campsites,” accessible from either Red Lake trailhead or the Pacific Crest Trail by Olallie Lake; under five miles from either direction. According to ODFW Regional Information Officer Rick Swart,” a good lake should not be too shallow, which means it will not freeze solid in the winter, or overheat in the summer, while having enough underwater structure to provide the fish with optimal living conditions.” All those factors make Averill Lake a nearly-perfect destination for an overnight hike, with a possibility of getting to the shore early enough to fish in the evening, then rising early in the morning and fishing again, before heading back to civilization.

Perfect summer fishing.

equipment choices seem to be an essential part of most recreational activities, including fishing and backpacking. Combining the two makes choosing gear extremely important; after all, you will need a temporary roof over your head, along with a rod suitable to catch something for dinner! It is essential to realize that modern gear has evolved greatly, compared to the old style frame backpacks and waxed-cotton tents. “The nature of backpacking gear has been going the lightweight direction, making hiking more comfortable, and ultimately resulting in a better back-

country experience,” said Andrew Sullivan, Camping Buyer/ Manager at Next Adventure, a local outdoor outfitter. For the purposes of high lakes fishing, it makes sense to use lightweight gear, in order to save some weight for your fishing tackle. Perhaps the latest ultralight backpacking trend is not necessary, but a general “common sense” approach to packing for a trip in the backcountry should be used. Backpacking gear for an expedition like this can be pretty basic: a tent, a sleeping bag and sleeping pad, a headlamp, a water

purification system, a pair of water bottles, a knife, some fire starterlike material and a lighter, a navigation device, like a GPS, or a tried-and-true combination of a topographic map and a compass. Gear options are vast, with a multitude of choices, anything from water treatment drops to pump or squeeze filters and touchscreen GPS units to GPS apps for a smartphone. The most important thing about gear is to know how to use it, so you do not end up with a

Riding on Air

by Adam Fry

A Fast Cruise down the Lower Columbia Seafaring voyages have always been a great interest to me—heroic sailing adventures to faraway places that require great ocean Adam Fry crossings. However, t h e r e h ave b e e n some incredible trips made in inflatable boats. One of the most noteworthy was made by Alain Bombard, who in 1952 drifted 2700 miles across the Atlantic to test and prove potential survival skills at sea. More recently in 2010, survival expert Bear Grylls piloted a sophisticated rigid-hulled inflatable boat nearly 6000 miles across the Northwest passage. These expeditions sparked an interest in my co-worker and I to undertake a longer distance cruise

in our own inflatables. Running the lower Columbia river to Astoria and back was our goal, “just to do it” was our motto. The two boats, 12' and 14' long, departed North Portland harbor at 7 am loaded with fuel, camping gear, safety equipment, handheld GPS units and hand-held radios. With limited time and a desire to see the sights along the way, the trip was carefully planned. We estimated that with our small outboard engines of 15 and 20 hp, 22-24 gallons of fuel would be needed to complete the full distance of 158 nautical miles. This required that each boat squeeze in four additional five-gallon jerry cans of fuel. Down the river we went with the boats heavily laden, checking off the distance and planning fuel

transfers. By early afternoon, the west wind had picked up, the chop was quickly building. and Astoria was in sight. We were looking forward to lunch as we followed the range markers to guide us through the main channel and were soon tied up to Pier 39 at the east end of Astoria. Stepping out of the small boats after hours of continuous movement felt like walking off a ship after a 50-day passage—our sea legs were good, but our land legs weren’t. We clambered up the ramp, then sat down at the bar of the Rogue Pub, where we noticed the room appeared to sway! We enjoyed our meal and soon enough, it was time to start the long journey home. . The next hour and a half was spent surfing the wind waves to Cathlamet. There, we tied up in the marina and took a walk into town, found some fire wood, and grabbed a fresh pizza-to-go. A few miles upriver, we landed on a sandy spit that formed a safe cove to moor the boats and a view of the sunset. The tents were pitched, a fire was started, and pizza was consumed. The tide was up when we

turned in, with the boats securely tied off. The next morning, they were laying high and dry on the beach. We pulled the boats back down to the water without a problem, transferred more fuel into the outboard tank, and set off for home. The Columbia was filled with scenic views of cascading tree tops, an abundance of wildlife, and many cargo ships steaming in both directions. As the sun continued to rise, the fog burned off of the trees and the river appeared to steam.

Shortly after, the wind picked up and we encountered steep choppy water again. With less fuel to carry, the inflatables bounced along until we reached the Willamette River and Mt. Hood came into sight. We reached North Portland harbor just after noon, bringing our 30-hour marathon to an end. While it is fun to reflect on the grander voyages of famous adventurers, our trip was a two-day cake walk on the lower Columbia while “riding on air.”

High Lakes...continued from page 7 useless item when it is needed the most. Still, all that is the part of the allure of backpacking. You probably will not need a lantern or a hatchet—a headlamp and a lightweight canister stove will keep your world illuminated and your food cooked. In fact, if feeling adventurous, you can forget about the stove, and bring only a backpacker-specific aluminum or titanium pan, a little container of olive oil, some spices and attempt to fry your freshly-caught dinner over open fire. Of course a backup meal of

bread, cold cuts or cheese, and dried fruit should always be tucked away in your pack, along with some high calorie energy bars, in case fishing success is not achieved. A lightweight, collapsible and packable spinning rod is the logical choice for this endeavor. Fly fishing is popular elsewhere, but keeping the back cast clear of thick bushes, which usually surround high lakes can be a major challenge. Casting a small lure, however can be done in a relatively effortless fashion, producing decent results. There should be

plenty of opportunity to tinker with the selection, picking different types and colors of lures.

Wilderness Fishing Like most freshwater fish, trout like to congregate near river and creek inlets, where the current carries tasty morsels that fish eat into the lake. Fishing around these areas, while making a special effort to let the lure pass by underwater logs and rocks, should get the fish to come out of their hiding places and bite. If the lake is not too large, it is possible to stay ashore and get away without using waders or even wading boots, but a small landing net can come in quite handy. Keep in mind that any trout over eight inches is legal to keep in Oregon's high lakes, while the daily limit varies by location. Specific information regarding all the legal details can be obtained online, or when buying t h e r e q u i r e d b a s i c fi s h i n g license. Fishing Oregon’s high l a ke s r e m a i n s p o p u l a r w i t h a select group of anglers, ever since ODFW started stocking them. A possible explanation for that is the unique nature of this undertaking, along with the thrill of all the particular details that go into planning and executing each outing. Rick Swart feels that “you will not fill your creel with fish, but should be able to catch a few for dinner. And that is a good time outdoors.” And it does indeed sound like an adventure...

A Special Blue and Gold Star Day at CRYC

Larry Webb • Mike Otis

by Pete Grillo Ten vessels left the cut at Columbia River Yacht Club (CRYC) on a very important mission on July 12th. The crews were at high attention, determined to make sure guests on board were happy and comfortable with lots to eat and drink. “It’s just our way of saying thank you to families of the greater Portland area who have loved ones serving in the Armed Forces throughout the world,” said Mark St. Pierre, CRYC board member and coordinator of this special day of honor. Over the past several years it has been our privilege to participate with other yacht clubs along the Columbia River in honoring Blue Star and Gold Star families in conjunction with Opening Day activities. This year we wanted the focus to be completely on the families so we organized this special event just for them,” he explained. After a cruise around Hayden Island and up and down the river, all vessels returned to CRYC for a special luncheon aboard the Paddlefish, the club’s special floating club-

house. Members of the board and volunteers pulled out all of the stops in preparing a true red, white and blue picnic! Burgers, dogs, potato salad, corn on the cob, baked beans all followed up with generous slices of apple pie a la mode insured that no one was left hungry! “Our plan is to make this an annual event,” St. Pierre commented. There has never been an easier event to get club members to volunteer for and next year we hope to double the number of participants! It is just so much fun to be a part of something like this,” he concluded. While on board Paddlefish, Terry Carrol, chapter president of the Blue Star/Gold Star, unveiled the model of the memorial they are working towards having built at the Willamette National Cemetery. Blue star families have loved ones serving and protecting our freedom. Gold Star families have lost loved ones in the service of our country.

Set sail to Port Townsend for the 38th Wooden Boat Festival on September 5-7 Crowning the summer festival season is the 38th Wooden Boat Festival-a feast for the eyes and festival fun for the entire family! The Festival is filled with spectacular vessels, captivating speakers, and opportunities to row, paddle, and sail. It runs from September 5th through the 7th, with 3 days of live music and kids activities. Festival hours are 9 am to midnight on Friday and Saturday and 9 am to 5 pm on Sunday. The weekend culminates with the awe-inspiring “Sail By” at 3 p.m. Sunday. For those who can't wait until Friday, Bar Harbor opens to the public Thursday night at 5 pm with live music from 5:30 until 10:00 p.m. This year’s Festival features more than 250 wooden vessels and dozens of indoor and outdoor presentations and demonstrations. Legends of the sailing and boating world come to share their talents and knowledge with thousands of wooden boat enthusiasts. Festival presenters this year include: Steve Callahan, author of “Adrift, 76 days at Sea,” and “Capsized;” Lin and Larry Pardey, the world's favorite cruising couple; and Halsey Herreshoff, the most distinguished America’s Cup sailor in the world. These renowned sailors and adventurers can be found throughout the Festival: in the classroom, on the boats, in the food court—and on the dance floor. Some of the larger boats present this year are the storied steamship Virginia V, our official

state tall ship the Lady Washington, training schooner Pacific Swift, and the lovely schooner Adventuress. The harbor will be filled to capacity! Families will enjoy Kids Cove, complete with carousel, kids' boatbuilding, arts & crafts, face painting and more. There are plays daily on the North Star Stage, beach walks with Marine Science Center volunteers, and a Pirate Treasure Hunt on Sunday! There are numerous opportunities to get out on the water: board any of the boats in the harbor, try out a paddle board, row a kayak, row an historic longboat, sail on a Thunderbird, or head out on a charter on one of the three visiting schooners and tall ships! Regattas and races are held throughout the weekend, In addition to rowing races and model boat races, the annual Northwest Schooner Cup is held on Saturday at 3 pm-truly an impressive sight! There are several places to take in the sights. The Balcony Wine Bar has the best view of the harbor and bay, and the new Merchant Saloon ship out on the point is a charming place to watch the races and catch a cool breeze and local brew. The Main Stage has three days of live music, with huge outdoor dances Friday and Saturday nights. For those favoring a quieter venue, The Life of Pi will be screened Friday evening at the Northwest Maritime Center, with a Q&A session featuring Steve

Marine Board Urges Boaters to Keep a Sharp Lookout on Area Rivers and Lakes As a result of less snow pack and lower rainfall amounts this winter, many Oregon lakes and rivers will be reaching historically low levels which will expose previously unseen hazards to boaters this summer. Stumps, rocks, logs and other obstructions could be just below the surface, resulting in hull or prop damage in areas that are normally navigable. These obstructions also impact the water dynamics and the currents in rivers, which can increase the difficulty to navigate safely, especially for paddlecraft. The Marine Board urges boaters to plan ahead and take the time to scout area waterways before launching your boat. “No matter where you boat, most of our rivers and lakes will have obstructions that may not have been a problem earlier in the summer.” says Ashley Massey, Public Information Officer at the Oregon State Marine Board. “Water levels are changing quickly, so boaters need to assess the waterway each time they go boating.” Boaters can check the Marine Board website to see what’s been previously reported, but that does not take the place of scouting ahead once at the river, and having a plan if you do encounter an obstruction you cannot safely navigate or portage around. Trees, root wads and other natural debris are a common part of Oregon's rivers and streams, providing important ecological benefits such as fish habitat, sediment removal, etc. and can be very dangerous to boaters. Deadheads (old pilings or logged tree stumps) may lie just below the surface, so keep a close

“Water levels are changing quickly, so boaters need to assess the waterway each time they go boating.” watch for subtle changes in the water’s surface. Strainers (trees hanging out from the bank) can trap a boat and the current could force it underwater. Keep a sharp look out downstream and use a quick-release anchor system for just such emergencies. Motorized boaters should operate carefully and pay particular attention to the surface dynamics ahead of where they’re headed, especially while on-plane. If paddling on rivers with whitewater rapids, any rapids designated as a Class III or higher, boaters are required to wear a properly fitting, U.S. Coast Guard approved life jacket. Not sure where to put in or take out? Visit the Marine Board’s Boating Access Map to help plan your trip at cess/access.aspx#Where_to_Launch_ in_Oregon.

Broad Reachings Hawaii-Bound, Rail Down. Sometimes. by Eric Rouzee


s I write this, most of the Pacific Cup fleet is sitting comfortably in Kaneohe Bay, enjoying whichever round of Mai Tais they might be on. Knowing how good a cold beer tastes after bashing up the Washington coast in a springtime gale, I can’t even begin to imagine how easy a rum-laced tropical fruit drink must go down after working your way over 2,000 miles from San Francisco to Hawaii. Probably depends in large part on whatever trials and tribulations you faced along the way. This year’s fleet got a little bit of everything, from strong squall conditions to high pressure drifting out in the middle of the course, where the closest solid ground is straight down. Being becalmed anywhere isn't much fun, let alone in the middle of nowhere, which would make the Mai Tais taste even better at the Kaneohe Yacht Club. Portland boats did more than well, by the way. “California Girl,” Timm and Victoria Lessley’s Cal 40, took line honors and an overall 2nd place in the Alaska Airlines Division, and “Free Bowl of Soup,” Eric Hopper’s, Matt Davis’s and Doug Schenk’s J/105, not only finished first in the Weems and Plath Division, but won it as well. David Garman’s “Giant Slayer,” a former Oregon Offshore entry sailing out of Des Moines, WA, was having a fairly nice run, right up until they lost their rig, which probably slowed their progress almost as much as the mid-Pacific flat calm did. Fortunately, they were able to jury rig a set up and actually finish the race under their own power. Talk about earning your post-race libations. At any rate, congratulations to all the Pacific Northwest sailors, not to mention all the sailors who took part in this year’s race. As I write this column, there are still five boats making their way to Hawaii. So, keep the rum and pineapple juice cold. They’re going to earn it when they get in.

Little Boat, Big Dreams Last month, I told you the story of Jeff Duvall and Peter Guilfoyle, and their successful 2006 Pacific Cup campaign aboard a Moore 24. If you remember, Jeff and Peter used the event to raise funds and awareness for the March of Dimes and MOD’s work with premature babies. This year, another little boat with big fund raising dreams in mind took on the Pacific Cup. The father-daughter crew of Stan Perkins and Kerry Hallyburton, sailing their Santa Cruz 27 “Mirage” out of Hood River, Ore., sailed to raise funds for Remember Nku, an international non-profit started to prevent and eliminate the exploitation of children in the sex trade industry. Their plan? Among other things, to raise $160,000 to build a safe house for up to 60 children as young as three years old. As far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t matter where these two sailors finish in the final standings. They’ve already won. And by the way, “Mirage” wasn’t the only boat this year making a push to raise money for worthy causes. “Thirsty,” a Beneteau First 30 double-handed by Charles Devanneaux and Fred Courouble, raced to bring attention to ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease). They did it in part to salute a sailing friend and partner Gilles Galeme, who died of the debilitating disease back in 2012. And finally, the aforementioned “Free Bowl of Soup” out of Portland continued their ten-year-long program to raise money for the Portland Food Bank. Which is the perfect time for me to plug their upcoming annual fund raiser. Saturday, August 16 is the “Free Bowl of Soup” beer can race out on the Columbia River. Come on out, enjoy a relaxed race, and bring as much non-perishable food with you as you can. Whoever donates the most takes home the trophy, but more importantly, you’ll be fueling a great cause. And having continued on page 12

The Dual Bridge Duel Dual Bridge Duel SYSCO and Columbia Crossings make it two for two great races. The DBD is Bill (Captain Crumbucket) Sanborn’s brainchild. Modeled after the Three Bridge Fiasco Race in San Francisco Bay, it is the only yachting event in our area where the skipper gets to choose which way he starts the race. From the starting line at Buoy 14, one either can head west toward Buoy 3 which is just upriver of the south end of the Interstate Bridge, or east to Buoy 19, just downriver of the Glenn Jackson Bridge. Emphasis is on the word “just,” because neither of these buoys is used regularly as a course mark for river racing, and both of them are perilously close to their respective bridges. The pucker factor can be intense rounding 3, with a typically heavy spring current doing its best to sweep racers under the span. An opposite problem typically presents itself at Buoy 19, which sits in particularly ferocious current which operates like a powerful force field keeping the yachts from rounding quickly, if at all. The Buoy 19 problem is compounded by the there typically being little if any wind at all just downriver from the bridge. The DBD has been controversial from the get go. Last year, its first running, was preceded by m u c h a rg u m e n t w i t h i n t h e SYSCO board. What exactly is so special about Buoys 3 and 19? Why not use the more familiar Buoys 2 and 18?

course depending on wind strength. The reason is, because Captain Crumbucket simply will not hear of it. “There either will be great wind or not,” he said enumerable times. “Either everyone will finish or no one will.” Well, the DBD has been run twice, and on both occasions everybody finished; well, almost everybody. The first annual DBD was saluted by 30 knots of wind with gusts up to 40 knots at the start. The boats that did not finish that first year were the ones that wound up upside down or on their sides before the start. Yes, it was that windy! Having a heavy ocean boat like our Cascade 36, Wy’East, usually is not a good

thing for river racing, but on that day it was great. The start itself was a little hairy, with over thirty boats zooming to and fro, or tipping over, in the midst of blinding rain and tons of breeze. Nonetheless, once those that could start did start, the event turned out to be a lot of fun, and it went fairly quickly in spite of its exceptionally long distance. Whichever way you choose to start, the race distance is the same. Buoy 14 to the Interstate Bridge is a four mile round trip; Buoy 14 to 19 and back adds another six. Any way you slice it, you’re in for a ten mile slog. That’s the bad news. The good news is that, because of the legs of the race are all long, the

DBD can be sailed with a fairly small crew. There is only one spinnaker launch and one douse, unlike those nasty around the buoys races which often demand three or four launches and recoveries—a real headache on bigger boats. June 21 was a beautifully sunny, breezy day, so even the two and a half hour trip from 13 to 19 on Wy’East was a pleasant one. For the second running of the DBD, everybody stayed right side up. We had an over the top excellent turn out of forty-five boats, everybody finished and some of us even finished in the money. Maybe Captain Crumbucket’s idea is a good one afterall.

For Every Action, There’s an Equally Expensive Reaction Seen recently on Sailing Anarchy: 10 Boat Protest We heard that on Friday of the Farr 40 West Coast Champs in Santa Barbara, there was a 10 boat protest for one incident. Yes, 10 boats! Apparently Enfant Terrible on port did not tack right away when asked to by leeward boats in order to give way for oncoming starboard boats. The result was a huge pile up with multiple collisions. Thankfully, no one sustained too much damage, and no one was injured seriously on any boats. ET did their turn, but apparently in the protest room they were not thrown out but held responsible for all the damage. We hear some people are really (mad) about the whole thing. ET went on to win the regatta... Which of course, begs the question: who was representing Enfant Terrible in the protest room? And more importantly, what's the closest boatyard to Santa Barbara?




In the Galley with Capt. Sandra Bes It’s a little story about Joy. One summer, six years ago, I proposed to Roy on a knoll overlooking shimmering, emerald green Reid Harbor on Stuart Island in the archipelago of the San Juan's. I didn’t plan to propose. We'd had a wonderful day sailing and hiking. Tranquility was floating in the harbor below. The late afternoon sun shone above, a Madrone arched overhead, and a wave of romance overcame me. Roy replied with a deer in the headlights look, and practically ran down the trail away from me. Never one to be easily deterred, I shrugged and followed him down the trail. What can I say? I like the guy. I should mention here that he captured my attention a few years prior to this event by sending me pictures of him on sailboats, after I declined his initial invitation to get together for drinks or dinner. Instead, he took me flying, and I took him sailing. In the years since, we've sailed together, flown together, remodeled a kitchen, hosted parties with lots of friends and lots of great food, made picnics for flying trips, cooked aboard our boat, and even sailed through the treacherous waters of cohabitation. Except for occasional rough weather patch, its gone pretty well. When HE finally got around to proposing to ME, he asked if we could get married on that little knoll overlooking Reid harbor. If he didn't have me before, he had me for sure on that one. On the eve of the appointed day, July 3rd, our wedding party met on Orcas island; Roy’s brother, Alvin, my youngest daughter and two of our closest friends, Michael and Patricia. Michael would officiate our ceremony and my daughter Sierra and Patricia would be maid of honor and best man. Roy’s brother would capture the event in photos. More friends gathered at our boat that evening for a BBQ and to watch the Deer Harbor fireworks display. We enthusiastically tested Tranquility’s ability to feed eight, and after our dinner guests left, to sleep six. It was cozy. And we had a great time. Our wedding day arrived in glorious northwest summer style, sparkling sunlight in a cotton-ball studded sky. The resident harbor seal appeared behind the stern of our boat and snorted good morning. Birds nesting in the boom of our neighbors boat announced this was going to be a glorious day. I set out a simple breakfast of croissants (Trader Joes frozen, baked the night before), scones, fresh berries, plain yogurt, granola, and a press of strong coffee. The gals and guys took turns occupying the boat to dress. Our water taxi, a cute little fishing tug, arrived to take us to Stuart Island. Shortly before the sun hit zenith, the six of us gathered on the knoll overlooking Reid Harbor. And just as on that day six years ago, the water shimmered emerald green, and the Madrone arched above. Michael spoke the words that we felt in our hearts, the significance of the place, the importance of community, the promise of being

Roy and Sandra there for and with each other. Roy and I drank wine from the same glass, then smashed the glass to seal the deal (we took the broken glass off the island when we left). Roy and I kissed. We all hugged, then danced to our song. It was pure, simple joy. Back on Orcas Island, Roy and I had a private dinner at Inn At Ship’s Bay, an elegant restaurant on a secluded part of East Sound. The menu was fresh and imaginative. Pork Belly Strawberry salad caught my eye. When I ordered it, the waitress pointed out the window. The pork comes from up the hill, she said. Almost everything on the menu is grown in their garden or on one of the neighboring islands. Even the cream for the strawberry shortcake came from cows on Lopez Island. The pork belly strawberry salad was absolutely mouthwatering. Thick, tender bits of pork between just rendered fat, topped with sliced baby kale and pinky-tipped sized, summer sweet strawberries, all surrounded by strawberry puree. It was a time when I wished plate licking was socially acceptable. Same with the strawberry short cake, delicate scone with vanilla whipped cream, and sabayon sauce. The chef wrote Congratulations on the side of the plate in dark chocolate too good not to eat. We rejoined our crew on the deck of our hotel suite overlooking the long, moonlight waters of East Sound. The entire town was gathered on the lawn below, and a band was playing old-time music in the park. Children danced about, laughing and rolling in the grass, and a gal sold ice-cream sandwiches from a cart. Fireworks were launched from a barge parked just offshore, lighting up the starry night, bits of red, green blue sparkles reflected in the water and in our eyes. We sipped champagne, Roy and I kissed more, and we all shared hugs. It was Joy. Pure, blissful, tinglyto-the-toes, full-bellied sails, water-over the rail, dolphins-off the-bow, Joy. Pork Belly and Strawberry Salad It’s hard to find pork belly in the market, so I suggest using a good quality, thick sliced bacon. I tried using salt pork, boiling to make it tender, then frying and it was just not the same. Quantities are per serving: • 2-3 slices of bacon, cooked till done, not crispy • ½ cup fresh strawberries, washed and drained

• ½ cup of thinly sliced kale • 1-tablespoon balsamic vinaigrette • Diced or puree about ¼ cup of the berries • Add a scant spoonful of the vinaigrette to the pureed berries • In a separate bowl, toss the kale in the vinaigrette • Arrange the bacon on a salad plate • Top with the kale • Then with the strawberries • Then spoon the puree around the edge of the plate Strawberry Shortcake To make a version that will wow your family and friends, make real scones. I like Nigella Olsen’s recipe in How to Be a Domestic Goddess. If you’re in a rush, use Bisquick or an off the shelf scone mix. Don't skimp on the whipped cream. Pour heavy cream in a mixer, whip just until peaks start to form. You'll work it off on the Tuesday night race series. Cut the scones in half, stuff with berries and cream, and for the finish, spoon the sabayon sauce (below) around the edge of it all. Pure, simple, summer joy.

Custom Canvas and Upholstery

Sabayon sauce Blend six egg yolks, 1 cup of port or sherry and 1/3 cup of sugar in a chilled bowl. Rest the bowl in a saucepan over hot water. Whisk constantly, 4 or 5 minutes, taking care to not cook the eggs (the cream should never get so hot you cannot touch it) Whisk until it has the consistency of thick foam and triples in volume. Squeeze in a bit of lemon to taste. Serve warm or cold. Fair Winds and Bon Appetite!

Destination... Astoria & Ilwaco

Clarence Demasi skillfully fillets salmon for customers of Tiki Charters at the Astoria Marina.

There are many wonderful sunsets at the mouth of the Columbia during the summer.

The 194' M.Y. “Senses” belongs to Google founder Larry Page and is steelbuilt to explore remote areas far from marinas and services. It visited Vancouver, for a week, filled the fuel tanks in Astoria, and headed north.

This mural of a sailing gillnetter is found on Marine Drive just upstream of the Astoria-Megler bridge.

The Newsom family of Portland Yacht Club cruised down to Astoria this past month and enjoyed some of the area’s waterfront dining scene.

Astoria’s Buoy Beer Has a “Front-Row” View of Brewing and Shipping Throughout 2013, a team of carpenters and builders worked tirelessly to transform a huge empty industrial building on the Astoria waterfront into the city’s newest brewpub. The result is a stunning transformation of a derelict industrial space into a repurposed gem that proudly shows off its roots with historic equipment displays and old photos— while offering customers excellent brews and food. On top of this, it has the closest, most exciting view of busy Columbia River ship traffic—pilot transfers often happen right in front of the building! Built on pilings in 1924-after the Great Fire—as a feed and grain warehouse for the OwenPeeke Feed and Grain Co., the building was bought by New England Fish Company in 1939 as a receiving station for ground fish. Northwest Fur Breeders purchased the building in the late 1950s to produce mink feed until it closed in 1982. Then it became

a fish processing plant owned by Bornstein Seafoods, until it closed in 2006. Around 2012, Luke Colvin, owner of Arbor Care Tree Specialists, came up with the idea of turning it into a brewery. He enlisted around 20 local investors to finance the project and hired

some very talented people to make it happen. His brother-inlaw and General Manager Dave Kroening, who’s worked sales and marketing for Molson Coors; Dan Hamilton, a veteran home brewer from Seaside; Andrew Bornstein who continues to run his family fish business in a new

plant at the Port of Astoria, and Kevin Shaw, formerly head brewer at Bridgeport Brewery in Portland. The founders agreed that Buoy Beer should represent the working heritage of the Astoria waterfront, so the builders recycled “just about everything!” ex-

down on a resting spot for sea lions! In the same spirit, all the stainless steel brewing and storage tanks are visible through tall windows in the taproom, restaurant and bar. An ancient fish conveyor rises up to the second floor, and many older customers have told stories of working in this building. Buoy Beer occupies around 10,000 square feet of the 44,000-square foot building, so there are more memories still to be uncovered. The pub opened its doors to the public on Valentine’s Day, the restaurant followed in May and now chefs, Eric Jenkins and Jennifer Chapman have a full modern kitchen in which to ply their trade. Jenkins began his cooking career at the age of 16 at Jakes Famous Crawfish restaurant in Portland. He later worked at the celebrated Shelburne Inn and Restaurant with Jamella Lucas, then moved to Alaska to a post as

chef at remote Glacier Bay Lodge. This gave him an opportunity to really have become creative with seafood. He returned to Astoria as executive chef at the Seafood School; where he held over 250 classes for consumers, put on numerous demonstrations, and catered hundreds of functions at the Seafood Center. Jennifer Chapman, the kitchen manager, learned to cater for healthy appetites in the United States Coast Guard, as a Foodservice Specialist. She later found her way to the Seafood Center, where she met and struck up a friendship with Chef Eric Jenkins. She spent ten years there, and followed Jenkins to a new challenge opening the Buoy Beer Restaurant.

“Oregon’s Finest” All-Purpose Cleaner For many of us a clean and shipshape boat is a point of pride, and ideally we'd like to keep our favorite cruising grounds equally pristine. What if we could do both and save money at the same time? Introducing “Oregon’s Finest” all purpose cleaner/degreaser. It’s totally biodegradable and non-toxic, ammonia-free, and highly concentrated. “Oregon’s Finest” contains no bleach or harsh abrasives to ruin your gelcoat or brightwork. It’s unique organically derived formulation is environmentally safe and, depending on the dilution ratio, suitable for nearly any type of surface aboard your ship. It is also, as the name implies, made right here. For particularly grimy jobs like burners, barbecues, or bilges try anything from straight cleaner to a 4:1 or 5:1 dilution with a plastic scrubber or stiff bristle brush to help break up the nasty bits. For windows, walls, or woodwork use a 10:1 ratio and a soft brush or terry cloth towel. Carpeted areas respond well to a pre-treatment of diluted “Oregon’s Finest” allowing time for the product to break up soils and stains before final cleaning. A weak mixture of 2

ounces of cleaner to a gallon of water works great on dodger windows, eyeglasses, dive masks and anywhere you need streak free visibility, including TV and navigation screens. Just clean and buff with a soft cloth. Pre-soak your deck and topsides prior to pressure washing or use it to degrease motor parts. Use it on shore power cords and fenders to leave them looking brand new. It will even break up chewing gum, engine grime, and candle wax. Another benefit of “Oregon’s Finest” is , due to it’s concentration and many uses you can replace numerous products with just one. The quart size makes up to 3 gallons of solution suitable for anything from cleaning fish coolers to pre-washing the laundry. Of course if you have an excess of storage space to keep your cleaning supplies and enjoy sorting through all the bottles that’s fine, but for the other 99 percent of us this might be just the thing we’ve been looking for. “Oregon’s Finest” and other ecofriendly boat products are available at Columbia Marine Exchange, 7911 N.E. 33rd Ave., just 1-1/2 miles south of Marine Dr. across from the Oregon Food Bank.

Big Fines for Boats Anchored in Columbia River Shipping Channels Salmon fishermen and other recreational boaters who anchor in the shipping channel of the Columbia River starting August 1 may face boating citations up to $5,000. A state-and-federally led campaign called, “Operation Make Way” is aimed at changing behavior that, if not corrected, can result in boating fatalities and catastrophic environmental disasters. “Each fall thousands of anglers come after salmon migrating up the Columbia River,” said Randy Henry, Boating Safety Program Manager with the Oregon State Marine Board. “Some anglers choose to anchor in the channel, which is already illegal under state law, then expect large commercial freighters to navigate around them. This is like parking your car on a railroad track and expecting the train to go around you.” Large ships can travel 1.5 miles in six minutes, but because they are so large, their speed appears much slower. Waiting until the ship is visible as it comes around a bend leaves no time to weigh anchor. When fully loaded, these ships may have only inches to spare from the bottom of the river and must stay in the dredged channel. “Ship pilots are literally faced with the choice of running the vessel aground, or hoping the small boat—which is now hidden by the bow of the big ship— moves at the last minute,” said Henry. During “Operation Make Way,” vessels anchored in the channel and not weighing anchor when approached will face a citation. He noted that if you are cited under state law, it's a $260 fine, but if the U.S. Coast Guard cites you, it can be as much as $5,000. The Oregon State Marine Board, U.S. Coast Guard and multiple county sheriff's marine patrols will team up for the enforcement effort on key days in August and September. Participating agencies will also enforce all federal and state boating laws, including boating under the influence, life jackets and other equipment requirements, and fishing regulations. The primary goal, though, is to change boater behavior to not anchor in the channel. “If you see this from the ship pilot perspective, you understand how hazardous it is for a small boat to anchor in the channel,” said Henry. “Whether you’re trolling at Buoy 10 or fishing up near St. Helens, the bottom line is —don’t anchor in the channel. It’s not worth the risk and it’s not worth the citation.” Boaters should be carrying the required equipment for their boat size and all passengers must have a properly fitting life jacket readily accessible. Any child under the age of 13 must be wearing a life jacket while on the open decks of a vessel that is underway. If you observe boat operation or would like to report a boater who is not in compliance with the above requirements, contact the Coast Guard command center at 503-861-6211 or on Marine VHF radio channel 16.
