The 28th Annual Columbia River All Ladies Cruise May 16, 17 & 18 - Schwitter Landing The Ladies Cruise theme this year is Jimmy Buffet. Here is a little history for those of you that have never heard of our cruise before: The Columbia River Ladies Cruise started as a dare in 1986 with a group of women who knew they were capable of taking their boats out without the men... Since that time, it has contin-
ued to draw female captains from all areas of the lower Columbia River and inspires women to learn to navigate and pilot their own vessels. While at port, we teach each other what we know, tell stories, eat, drink, and participate in a variety of fun activities. All women, in any kind of floating vessel are welcome.
Come to Schwitter Landing to join fellow women boaters to celebrate boating, friendship and empowerment! Put this date on your calendar now because you don't want to miss an amazing weekend! For more information or to join the group, please go to www.ladiescruise.com.

News from The Frayed Knot Yacht Club on Detroit Lake Another boating season is getting underway here, and boaters are anxious to get going. I went by Kane’s Marina recently and the water level is rising fast, so we expect a super full lake again this year. We are looking forward to our two annual sailing regattas : If you haven’t sailed with us yet at the Lake, come sign up for some great sailing. Everyone with a trailerable sailboat is invited to the Lake in the Forest for the Detroit Lake Regatta. July 12: sign up by noon, with the usual 12:30 start time, for the long race to the dam and back. The 1:30 p.m. race goes around the island and back. The event is open to anyone who wants to join us. August 23: the end of summer regatta will be onto coincide with the marina’s customer apprecia-
ered by twin 9.9 hp outboards burning propane. Heating is by wood stove and it will also have a composting toilet. Rainwater will flow off the roof into a tank for on board use in the sink, via a foot pump. Solar panels with charge the batteries and lighting will be all LED’s. Kerry’s real job is commercial and fine-arts, so you will see airbrushed murals painted on the interior and exterior. The Water Woody is named after Kerry’s late brother Woody, who donated all his woodworking equipment. So come over to Detroit Lake to see this liveaboard, floating RV and bed & breakfast .

tion day—the start times will be the same. There is usually plenty of room on the guest dock for visiting boats. We will have a hosted barbecue and trophy presentation on the lawn, for all skippers and crew who signed up.
A DIY Winter Project The off season is a great time for upgrades, repairs and new projects; Kerry Elwood, founder of the Frayed Knot Yacht Club, took on the challenge of building a 29-foot wooden shanty boat in his mother’s garage. The hull is marine plywood trimmed with several hardwoods, including black walnut, marbled maple, reclaimed red cedar and teak. This mini-houseboat is narrow enough to trailer, and will be pow-

Lifejacket Kiosk at 42nd St. Ramp Fred Washburn of the Multnomah County River Patrol reports that the project to build a childrens’ life jacket kiosk at the 42nd St. boat ramp is nearly finished. After a little over a year of planning and construction, the structure is up and Fred was in the process of purchasing hooks for the vests and working on signage. There will be three sign boards promoting life jacket safety, the Daughters of Neptune, and the sponsors of products or services The kiosk is located at the 42nd Street boat ramp. that went into this project.
St. Helens Fills Calendar With Events From May to December St. Helens Oregon has long been known for its historic downtown waterfront. This Columbia River port city has also built a reputation as a Spirit of Halloween town and as a backdrop for movies like “Twilight.” In a new initiative, St. Helens hopes to attract visitors from all over the Pacific Northwest for Countrycon—an eight band, two day musical happening on May 17-18. This will be a new step for St. Helens to expand its appeal throughout the region. “We’ve lined up an exceptional selection of local country bands as well as some from Seattle that will keep the musical line-up fresh and exciting,” said Chris Finks, director of tourism. “We’re going to build St. Helens as the quick, fun getaway from Portland and Vancouver and one of the best ways to do that is by creating events and happenings that people will enjoy.” Countrycon will feature such acts as Brent Amaker and the Rodeo from Seattle, Carrie Cunningham, Michele Drey and Branded Band, Earl Haimes Band, Tiffany
Kuenzi, Countrywide and Sweetwater, and Counterfeit Cash. Countrycon is just the start of the season; other new events coming to town include Buskerfest Circus at the River, The Wind and Water Festival, an expanded Spirit of Halloweentown including a pumpkin patch, and a Paranormal Symposium. These events complement established events such as 13 Nights on the River, July 4th Celebration, The Maritime Heritage Festival and Christmas Ships arrival. St. Helens has many dynamic activities for a much more intimate experience brought by a smaller population. “In order to keep St. Helens vibrant, we need to support interesting activities that attract not only locals, but out-of-town guests who do not want a long drive or an expensive hotel bill to enjoy a great weekend. The historic charm of St. Helens makes it a great location for all kinds of events, and the water adds another element that allows for a nice variety,” added Finks.

Destination... Ilwaco Boaters Discover More Reasons to Visit the Port of Ilwaco by M. Nowell The Port of Ilwaco, located on Washington’s Baker Bay at the mouth of the Columbia River, is gearing up for a bustling 2014 boating season. Predictions for a strong fishing season, in addition to festivals, events and added enhancements at the Port, as well as nearby landmark attractions, make charting a course to the Long Beach Peninsula even more compelling. “We’re anticipating a better than ever season,” said Guy Glenn, manager, Port of Ilwaco. “Providing the amenities and friendly customer service that boaters really appreciate has built a great reputation for the Port.” Fishing forecasts are optimistic. “This certainly could be a banner year for summer salmon fisheries, particularly off the Washington coast and in the Columbia River,” said Ron Warren, fisheries policy lead for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. “With the 2014 salmon season expected to be strong, we encour-

age boaters to go to our online website now to book their slips for the summer,” added Glenn. Slip reservations at the Port of Ilwaco opened March 1 and are already ahead of counts from this time last year. Slips can be booked at www.portofilwaco.com or by calling 360-642-3143. Among the well-maintained facilities and amenities at The Port of Ilwaco that are most appealing to boaters are an 800-slip marina, which can accommodate vessels from 12-125 feet in length; competitive moorage rates; ample parking on a new, chip-sealed parking lot; and a new, three-bay indoor boatyard building (increasing the indoor bays to five). In the summer at the Port, live bait, highly desired by both sport and commercial fisherman, is also available. Free, wireless Internet access is accessible Port wide. Guest moorage is offered year round, as well as a back-in launch, two small boat hoists and two fuel docks. Additionally, the Port of Ilwaco has a 50-ton Travelift, a self/fullservice work yard and dry boat storage facilities. “Future plans include development of dock upgrades to accommodate larger vessels and increased demand for electricity by boaters," said Glenn. The marina waterfront offers a Pavilion available for public use. Restaurants, lodging, a marine supply store, gift shops, galleries, seafood markets, and a bookstore round out the mix. Beyond the water, numerous festivals and appealing activities
greet visitors to this fair harbor. The colorful Saturday Market at the Port May through September offers fresh produce, cut flowers, artisan crafters, food stands, entertainment and more. Blues & Seafood Festival August 15-16, Slow Drag Sept. 5 The always-entertaining Blues and Seafood Festival is slated for August 15 and 16, and Slow Drag at the Port will take place on Sept. 5. The Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum, a day spa, a post office, banks and more shops are a short walk away. Sought out by land lovers, too, an 8.5-mile paved, pedestrian and cyclist trail starts at the Port and is marked by a gigantic bronze sculpture of a California condor. This scenic trail crosses the Cape Disappointment headlands and parallels the Pacific Coast to finish north of Long Beach. Ilwaco is also the gateway to the Lewis and Clark National and Historic Park and Cape Disappointment State Park. Park visitors can explore miles of hiking trails, two landmark lighthouses, interpretive programs and the Waikiki Beach concert series. These websites offer more info: www.ilwacowashington.com and www.funbeach.com. The Long Beach Peninsula Visitors Bureau is also very helpful and can be reached at 360-642-2400. All this and more, make the Port of Ilwaco a port well worth calling on. Look for us at NAD83/WGS84 - 46° 18’ 20” N 122° 02’ 30” W
Newberg Memorial Weekend Hydroplane Races May 24-25 Will Close Rogers Landing The 66th Newberg Memorial Weekend Boat Races will be held Saturday May 24 and Sunday May 25 on the Willamette River at Rogers Landing in Newberg, Oregon. Racing each day will begin at approximately 10:30 a.m. and conclude by 6:30 p.m., featuring outboard boat racing ranging in speeds from 35 mph to over 90 mph. Admission is free to the public. Rogers Landing is located at the foot of River Street. River Street is at the 99W split in downtown Newberg—look for the signs. This is one of the oldest outboard regattas in the country, featuring 80-100 entries from Oregon, Washington, California, and British Columbia in as many as 18 classes. Entrants range in age from 9 years old to 60 plus. The race is put on by the Newberg Boat Club with help from the Columbia Outboard Racing Association, and is sanctioned by the American Power Boat Association. Bleacher seating is available, as well as shoreline viewing along much of the racecourse. Concessions include burgers, soft drinks, coffee, and snacks. Parking is available at the entrance to Rogers Landing (donations accepted). There will be a shuttle van available (donated by Loren Berg Chevrolet) to assist spectators down the hill to the viewing area. You can sign the insurance waiver,
It is that time of year again: the sun is coming out, the air is getting warmer and we are starting to think about the boating season. But please be aware that the water temperature is still chilly and the air is not really warm yet either. There are also quite a few hazards out on the water, brought on by the higher water levels. There are still submerged pilings, new sand bars are popping up, and there is a lot of floating debris, so be on the lookout. If you are bringing your boat out for the first time for the season with the nice weather, please do a few checks before you come out! Make sure that you have a lifejacket for everyone on the boat, and by a life jacket, I mean one that is an appropriate size and type for each individual and in good condition. Make sure that the boat is in sound running order, the battery is charged, and that all of your other safety equipment is on the boat and also in good working condi-

get a wristband, and visit the “hot” pits and talk to the racers. The Newberg tradition started in 1946, when a small group of men with a love for boats, speed, and water formed the Newberg Boat Club. In the beginning the members built a boat ramp each year, as the winter’s high waters would wash the previous year’s ramp away. With the Oregon rains generally not stopping until July, the ramp and surrounding area were pretty much a mud hole on Memorial Weekend. The club members eventually poured a cement ramp and built a dock and
each year improved the park area. In more recent years Yamhill County has taken over management of the ramp and park and have vastly improved the area with help from the Oregon State Marine Board. The first couple of years the club ran a marathon race from Newberg to Salem and back. Then in 1948 they decided their event needed improvement and became affiliated with the American Power Boat Association. This ongoing affair has run every year since, except for one year when the water was too high to safely
conduct a boat race. This event is one of the highlights of the Region 10 outboard season. The Yamhill County Commission has authorized full closure of the Rogers Landing parking area and boat launch from 6:00 p.m. Friday May 23 until 11:59 p.m. Sunday May 25. The Oregon State Marine Board has authorized closure of the Willamette River between the St. Paul Bridge and the northern end of Ash Island from 10:00 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. on both Saturday May 24 and Sunday May 25.

Probably one of the biggest mistakes that everyone makes is that they run out of gas because they forget to fill it up! In that rare occasion when you do have an incident on the water and you need assistance, please attempt to contact one of the commercial assistance companies. If it is an emergency please call 911 or if you feel that it is not quite an emergency but need assistance call the non-emergency number at 503-823-3333, or attempt to hail us on marine channel 16. The River Patrol is getting ready for the boating season with some upcoming activities. Opening day of the Yachting season is on the 3rd of May. We will be sending a couple of instructors to the State Marine Academy down in Clackamas County, to help train the new Marine Patrol deputies from around the state.

The Ebihen 16 is an interesting new day sailer built in S.E. Portland at the ADX community workshop in S.E. Portland. The design is by French architect Francois Vivier; inspired both by the fishing boats of Northern Brittany, and was chosen by a local sailor who wanted a seaworthy trailerable open boat for local river cruising. It is 15'9" LOA (without bowsprit), 6' beam, and about 18" draft, with the heavy metal centerboard up. It has water ballast tanks under the cockpit floor, a well for a small outboard motor, three flotation tanks filled with foam, and carries about 56 sq. ft. of sail in the gaff cutter rig. The boat was built by eight students who attended Wind & Oar-a small nonprofit that teaches youth and adults the “fine art of building wooden boats.” The students came from social agencies funded by Worksystems Inc. The program was a workplace skills development experience intended to prepare students for achieving their GED and getting them on the path to gainful employment. The hull was built over 13 weeks with students working 4 hours a day, five days a week. Wind & Oar instructor and founder Peter Crim described how the project progressed: Vivier sent the cut files via the internet and the shop’s CNC table turned out all the plywood parts. The planks were finger jointed out of 9mm marine ply. Vivier calls for building the backbone on the floor, adding bulkheads and molds, and then flipping it to plank it. Keeping all the bulkheads and molds true proved challenging, The planks are glued lapstrake and went on easily. The spars are all spruce as are the decks and seats. The centerboard is steel. There are some specialty bronze fittings for the traveler, mast partner hasp, and bowsprit mounts that were made locally by Silver Eagle Manufacturing. The rest of the bronze hardware came from the NW Maritime Center Chandlery in Port Townsend. One of the early test sails in 28 to 34 mph winds demonstrated the need for the water ballast with a small crew aboard. Once topped up, she handles like a much larger

boat and can take strong winds comfortably and without anyone getting wet. The cockpit is roomy and can take 6 adults—like a typical 40 footer! The boom is high enough that one is not ducking excessively on every tack, and the jib can be rigged high enough to provide good visibility. In light winds, and with no water ballast, the boat still moves well. The only drawback is the high profile out of the water and little mass in the water makes her slow tacking, but she’s not a racing boat, rather a comfortable daysailer. So I don’t expect this boat to catch on for river sailing as it is a complex build and complex rig. It takes a while to rig so is not suited to a quick evening sail. In the end, though, I’ve enjoyed sailing it in fall and spring conditions where the river and wind might challenge other boats. Wind & Oar provides unique opportunities for students of all
ages to know the joy of creating tangible works of beauty and function, proving “It’s bigger than the boat.” With an emphasis on the power of hands on learning to master new skills and demonstrate the importance and relevance of math, science, design and collaborative problem solving skills.

Columbia River Yacht Club Gets Serious About Safety—in the Pool on May 17 The challenges of boating in the northwest demand that special attention is given to emergency preparation. Most pleasure boaters only think of lifejacket in conjunction with safety inspections or when they are stopped on the water. Boater Education Cards emphasize the importance of lifejackets, but real-life opportunities to experience lifejackets in the water are seldom offered. The Columbia River Yacht Club has scheduled a “Lifejacket Safety and Awareness Seminar" for May 17 as part of its member safety program. The training will be based on the OSMB Marine Academy pool class required for all incoming law enforcement deputies throughout the state. The curriculum for the CRYC session will cover the proper usage, deployment and maintenance of lifejackets, both inherently buoyant and inflatable, in real life situations but with the safety of a con-
trolled and safe pool environment courtesy of the Lakeshore Athletic Club in Vancouver. This initial session will be a beta test for the training session and CRYC hopes to roll the program out to all its members and to other yacht clubs on the Columbia River. Statistics confirm that even the most committed lifejacket wearers have seldom actually deployed one in water, or even on land. Emphasis will be given to the challenges of swimming while wearing a lifejacket, selfrescue techniques, individual coldwater survival and group cold-water survival. This drill and training will make the user aware of the explosive force and reaction caused when an automatic-inflatable lifejacket comes in contact with water. Additionally, training will include type IV flotation devices, throw lines, throw rings, type IV throwable cushions and a survival
suit race. Fred Washburn, CRYC Safety Officer is heading up the class and promises a session full of important information presented in a fun and experience based setting.
Background: Springtime weather is just around the corner and boaters are looking forward to getting their boats dusted off, seat cushions cleaned, hulls waxed and families out on the water. Unfortunately, most do not include a review and update of safety equipment in their spring preparations. Questions including the number of lifejackets on board, fire extinguishers checked, safety kits inspected and so on go completely unanswered. Note: the U. S. Coast Guard changed the official designation of all wearable floatation equipment from Personal Flotation Device (PFD) to “Lifejacket” in 2013.

Broad Reachings Hangin’ With the Girls...Again by Eric Rouzee
ecently, my wife Diane and I were at the Portland Yacht Club for the annual Sailors Dinner, and what a terrific evening it was. Seeing old friends we hadn’t crossed tacks with since...well, since we’d all been out on the water crossing tacks last fall. Enjoying rum drinks and fire dancers and music and plenty of laughs, it was indeed a great way to fire up this year’s sailing season. But for me personally, it was more than that—a lot more! Somewhere in the middle of the evening, we were standing with a group of friends (oddly enough, near the bar) that, among other people, included dear friends Jacki McLaughlin and Jeff and Kimberly Duvall. Suddenly, out of left field (or out of port tack, to get more in the spirit of things) Jacki exclaimed, “WE’RE ALL HERE! WE’RE BACK TOGETHER!” I stopped, took notice, and thought, “Oh. My. God. She’s right. They’ve found me.” It was The Girls. For those who haven’t heard the tale, back in 2009 I was serving as the race captain for the Oregon Offshore, which meant my duties were going to keep me off the water, other than managing the start out at Buoy 2. Instead of the Oregon Offshore, Eric was doing the Oregon Inshore. And believe me, it was the toughest run up the coast I’ve ever had. After all, I was hangin’ with The Girls. We got the fleet started on what would turn out to be a beam reach up to Point Flattery for most of the boats. I, on the other hand, was very definitely beating to weather as I headed up 101 with The Girls. Don’t get me wrong, they were a joy to travel with, but understand that they weren’t exactly the sedate sort of companions that one would normally find on an offshore yacht. Hell, I’m pretty sure circus clown conventions are lower key. Whatever, we made our way north through Aberdeen and Hoquiam and whatever other little towns were between us and Port Angeles. I really couldn’t tell you, as my head was down much of the trip, conversing with Sector Portland, Sector Seattle, and Air Station Astoria over what turned out to be a false alarm on a personal EPIRB on board one of the boats. Turns out the prospect of dealing with a potential man overboard was the calmest part of my weekend with The Girls.

We eventually rolled into Port Angeles, me drawn out from my duties as race captain, The Girls tired from, I don’t know, figuring out how to scare up some fun in the greater metropolitan region of Forks. We found a decent restaurant near our hotel where I thought I might enjoy a quiet martini and unwind. The Girls however, were simply working with a different agenda. After they’d knocked back a couple of apple martinis (whatever those are) they got even more rambunctious, if that was possible. Their conversation wasn’t exactly family-friendly, but it was definitely loud, and my efforts to remind them of the finer points of public etiquette went for naught. Fortunately, our waiter was sympathetic to my plight, and kept me plied with real martinis. Meanwhile, Port Angeles got an abject lesson on hangin’ with The Girls. By the time boats in the actual race were turning the corner and popping their chutes, we’d arrived in Victoria, which mostly meant to me that whatever The Girls got into was going to have international repercussions. Our first duty as the on-shore race committee was purchasing the bottles of champagne that are ultimately given to the finishing crews. We’re talking a lot of bubbly here folks, enough that we were using a couple of shopping carts. Unfortunately, The Girls weren’t versed in Canadian shopping cart corrals, and watching them try to figure out the “put-a-quarter-in-get-agrocery-cart-out” system was more entertaining than a crash jibe. Eventually, with the help of an elderly Canadian fellow who offered up his cart only if The Girls gave him a quarter for it, we picked up the champagne and headed for downtown Victoria. My hopes of The Girls mellowing out died with the first round of cocktails at the Bengal Room. Other favorite hotspots were hit, and The Girls were in fine form all day long, and well into the night, adding the citizens of Victoria to the list of people who were hangin’ with The Girls. As boats started finishing, we were pretty ramped up. Kimberly’s husband Jeff was on board Mummbo Jummbo, and they’d just beaten defending Offshore champ Time Bandit over the line. So, how do you celebrate? With a hotel room party put on by The Girls, of course! I won’t go into detail about the number of phone calls we received from the front desk, but obviously our fellow hotel guests had never experienced hangin’ with The Girls. They had no way of knowing. I haven’t been to Victoria as part of an Offshore crew now for two or three years, but I can verify that I’ve seen that race when the seas were flat, and I’ve seen it in a fullon gale. I’ve done the race on a slow boat that almost didn’t finish in time, and I’ve done it on a fast boat that still holds the elapsed time record. None of them, and I mean none of them, compares to the time I did the Oregon Offshore hangin’ with The Girls.

Tranquility has spent the winter in Tacoma. It has been a bit lonely for her there. She misses the San Juan islands, our sails between rocky, tree-lined shores, otters on the dock, harbor seals and pods of porpoise. We usually migrate north in May, after the Oregon Offshore, when the blustery spring weather has settled out and my sailing buddies have time for the trip. This year a jumble of life events tossed all plans about. So I have no idea when I’m taking TQ north, I said to Roy, as we sat in our office moving events around on the calendar. I haven’t been able to find crew. Everyone is getting ready for the Oregon Offshore. What about this weekend,

he said. He flipped to the weather forecast on the computer. It looked to be a rare, sunny weekend. I smiled. Let’s do it. I took out a pad and pen and drew my menu planning grid. It's a method I’ve used to involve the crew in provisioning since the days when I took my little daughters boat camping on our 26-ft sailboat. Can you get food together for these meals? Fill in the blanks with what you’d like to eat, I said, and handed the paper to Roy. The grid looks like this:
X’s mean we do not need that meal for that day. O’s mean we are going to eat out. The crew fills in the blanks with meal preferences. The shopping list is made based on the items in the grid. If you are doing extended cruising, plan the menu to use more perishable items first. By 6 p.m. that evening, Roy and I were in Tacoma, tossing off dock lines. Three hours later, we were through Colvos Pass. We decided that was a great start and picked up a mooring buoy on the west side of Blake Island. We did this in the dark, in a fresh breeze, with light chop, and for the record, there was no yelling, and Roy and I still like each other. We were however, both very happy to call it a night. It is also time for the annual migration known as the Oregon Offshore. I reached out to friends and crew to share how they provision, how they keep their energy up, and what the voyage means to them. Here is what they said:

Kitty, Crew on SV Katzenjammer: Racing in the Oregon Offshore Race is an endurance test. Racing around the clock with your raceboat as your only shelter is an experience unlike any other. There is something compelling about being on a boat, completely reliant on the wind as your source of power and trying to get somewhere as fast as the wind will carry you. I have a renewed appreciation and closeness to the planet we live on after participating in the OOR. Bruce, Crew on SV Katzenjammer: Oregon Offshore is about broadening my sailing experience and the challenge of preparing for unknown conditions. It’s a chance to get a taste of what distance racing is, while getting a new perspective on the NW coastline. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to test our skills, training, and teamwork. I snack on nuts of all kinds, and am energized by task completion. For dinner the first night of our passage, I tossed together a “Stir-Fry” in a big pasta pot. The ingredients were simple, fresh, wholesome, and in the comfort of our boat, floating and bouncing lightly on the mooring ball, it was delicious. The open water nourishes our soul and spirit of adventure. Good, healthy food nourishes our bodies so we can better enjoy the adventure.

FOR SALE FLOATING HOME ON COLUMBIA RIVER
Dale’s Corner by Dale Waagmeester Dacron Sailcloth: Dinosaur or Dynamite Part II We started this discussion regarding polyester (or Dacron if you will) sailcloth in last month’s Freshwater News and we continue this month with Part Dale Two. Last month we Waagmeester talked about the different yarns used in weaving sail fabric, and the difference between warp-oriented and fill-oriented fabrics. Also, covered were the differences in construction and use between high aspect and low aspect fill-oriented sailcloth. Let’s continue by talking about how sail cloth is tested. Every lot of fabric from a quality cloth supplier is tested for stretch on the warp, the fill, and on the 45 degree angle of the cloth roll (bias). Small strips of fabric are cut from the fabric roll in each of these directions and these strips are then clamped individually into
an Instron flatbed tester. Once clamped in, the Instron tester pulls on the fabric strip at a constant speed. The Instron tester has a load cell on these clamps that transmits the amount of stretch to a plotter that draws a resulting curve on a graph. From this curve, one can determine the amount of elongation in the sample at any given load. As an arbitrary standard of comparison for cloth elongation, we look at the stretch of the sample in units of 1/100 of an inch at a load of 10 pounds. The cloth is tested to much higher loadings than 10 pounds, however, and much attention is paid to the fabrics stretch at 50, 100, 200 pounds, or even more, depending on the relative strength of the fabric (light weight vs. heavy, or polyester vs. Aramid, etc.) We also look at the “yield” of the fabric, which is the amount of load it takes to stretch a fabric
sample past its point of recovery, i.e. until it is permanently elongated. We want to make sure that the fabric is going to stand up to the loading that we expect it to see in actual use. The amount of loading that it takes to stretch the sample 1% of its length is also noted as a comparative factor. Finally, the fabric samples are checked for tear strength against both the warp and the fill yarns. This is recorded as the amount of pounds necessary to tear the sample. Once these samples have been completely tested, a second batch of samples are cut out of the fabric exactly adjacent to where the first samples were taken. These new samples are put to a “flutter” test, where they are attached to a windmill like machine that spins around for a half hour at a high speed, fluttering the samples in an effort to fatigue the material, simulating the use the fabric will see in a sail after many tacks and gybes. The “fluttered” fabric strips are then tested on the Instron tester, exactly the same way that the initial samples were tested. The graph results of the two tests are then compared. Figure 1 shows a sample of one of these graphs. A typical high aspect fabric will see about 1.5 units of stretch on the fill at 10 pounds before flutter, and hopefully not much more than that after flutter. If we see much more than 2 units of total fill stretch after flutter on this continued on page 12

Kayak Fishing in the Northwest by Gleb Velikanov In a time when everything natural and outdoors is “in,” new takes on familiar, tried-and-true pastimes may appear. Enter kayak fishing, a relatively new sport that’s rising in popularity. It combines the thrill of fishing with paddling and has become one of the fastest-growing segments of the kayak market.

The invention of kayak fishing came about logically: why invest thousands of dollars into a conventional powerboat, when a kayak designed specifically for fishing can be yours for around a grand? “When fishing from a kayak, you are able to do nearly anything you would from a powerboat,” said Langston Kriel, a kayak fishing guru from The Kayak Shed in Hood River. “You can troll for salmon, jig for bottom fish out in the ocean and fish lakes that allow only non-motorized vessels—all from a kayak.” Fishing kayaks have quickly evolved into sit-on-top models that are between 30 and 36 inches wide. Tie-down hooks and places for the external mounting of gear ergonomically surround the operator, putting everything within arm’s reach. That sort of layout makes the vessel stable during navigation or any procedure that fishing would require, while providing easy access to anything necessary or the ability to haul in and store caught fish. Currently, fishing kayak manufacturers are improving existing models, while creating new ones,
to satisfy the demand. Kriel stated that good examples of those kayaks could be found in Hobie Mirage, Jackson Kayak and Ocean Kayak/Old Town lines, among others. Some fishing kayaks have a pedal drive; others feature an option for attaching an electric motor, rendering the kayak a motorboat in the eyes of the law. Outside those exceptions, the telltale sign of a kayak is the use of a double paddle—anything with oarlocks is considered to be a rowboat. (Depending on state rules, one may find that registering a kayak is a lot easier than a powerboat.) Accessing hard to reach fishing spots on shallow or narrow bodies of water is where a kayak excels. This dainty dart of a vessel can squeeze through the narrowest creek, then pack up and travel on top of a car or truck at the end of the day, no trailer necessary. Home storage is equally easy, with the kayak resting on a rack mounted on a wall, much like bicycles or skis. Maintenance is also a breeze with no motor to tend to, and minimal moving parts. Making sure the kayak is out of the way is almost the hardest task an owner will face when not on the water. continued on page 13
Dale’s Corner... continued from page 11 type of fabric, it is not what we would be looking for in a high aspect sailcloth. A typical low aspect fabric, or a “Blade” type construction, might see 2 to 4 units of fill stretch in the initial sample. Because we are emphasizing bias stretch resistance as much as fill strength resistance in these types of fabrics, we can accept a bit more stretch in the fill after flutter; perhaps 2 or 3 additional units of stretch.A fabric will be labeled as “seconds” if it stretches too much on the fill before flutter, or if it moves too far from its initial test numbers after flutter. The bias stretch of a fabric is determined by the amount of resin that is introduced during the fabrics finishing process. The weave and weight of the cloth also affect the amount of bias stretch that a fabric will exhibit. A fabrics bias stretch “numbers” determine the "firmness" of the fabric; whether it has a nice soft cruising hand or whether it is a super firm, stiff racing fabric. Fabrics with bias numbers of 3 to 5 are considered to be ultra firm; terms like Yarn Tempered or HTP are associated with these cloths. Bias’ in the 8-10 range are considered to be firm, while fabrics in the 12-15 range are considered to be medium firm. Fabrics with bias stretch numbers over 15 are considered to have a “soft hand” by today’s standards. Bainbridge’s old “Carolon” fabrics, and Hood’s notoriously soft cruising fabrics had little to no resins introduced in the manufacturing process and thus were extremely stretchy on the bias (probably testing in the 25 to 30 range or more). This was great for continued on page 13
Kayak Fishing in the Northwest...continued from page 12 Getting into kayaking in general, and kayak fishing in particular, does not have to be rocket science: most area outfitters offer classes and workshops, while their sales staff will guide an aspiring kayak fishing enthusiast towards a rig most suited for their needs. Kriel listed a few places to buy a kayak locally: Kayak Shed, Next Adventure, Alder Creek Paddle and Inflatable Boat Center. While details differ from store to store, most outfitters will make sure one can safely navigate the area rivers and lakes, some even applying the class enrollment fee towards the purchase of a kayak. After a manageable training and familiarization period, any one can employ the very same fishing styles and techniques as they would aboard a larger boat. Kriel emphasized that getting to know how to operate a kayak is the main concern when transitioning into kayak fishing. Whether using a model with an option to stand up, or using one’s tackle of choice sitting down, familiarity with moving and maneuvering the vessel is most important.
Keeping up with the modern trends, kayak fishing can contribute to remaining in decent physical shape, as it provides a good opportunity for cardiovascular endurance, promotes upper body and core strength. Of course, that is just the process of finding the fishing hole—the labors of fishing are sandwiched between getting there and back. “Kayak fishing can be done just about anywhere a powerboat would go in both the ocean and freshwater. We can even go where most powerboats cannot, since we run shallow and launch anywhere we can access the water.” Said Next Adventure’s own kayak fishing expert Nathaniel Olken. “Fishing is just more fun in a small boat, when you catch a big fish, it takes you for a “sleigh ride,” he added, “It is an unbelievable experience!” Olken emphasized the importance of recognizing the strengths and weaknesses of a human-powered vessel when out on the water. For instance, it is much easier to fish on the relatively quiet

Dale’s Corner...continued from page 12 easy handling, but not so wonderful in the shape holding department. Not all that long ago you could get nice cruising fabrics with bias numbers in the 15 to 20 range. These fabrics had decent resistance to bias stretch, but had a very nice soft hand that the cruisers loved. Today the pendulum seems to have swung the other way and many cruising fabrics are finished in the 8 to 10 range. I have been railing about this to the manufacturers for some time as I think that this is too firm for cruising sails. A few weeks back I had a conversation about this with Bobby Bainbridge of Challenge Sailcloth (Confused? Yes he is from the Bainbridge Sailcloth family, but he is one of the owners of Challenge Sailcloth). Challenge offers some of the finest polyester fabrics available for racing and cruising sails. Their Marblehead, High Aspect, HMD, and High Mass Fiber weave fabrics are some of the best sail fabrics that money can buy. When I asked him about his target bias numbers for most of his racing/cruising polyesters, he told me that the target numbers were in the 8 range. WOW! I was surprised. Bobby told me that when they offered a "soft cloth" line of fabrics a number of years back, there was little interest in that fabric. I asked him what had happened to bias numbers in the high teens and low 20’s and he told me (half) jokingly that they now called
those fabrics seconds. Similarly, Dimension/Polyant and Bainbridge seem to offer equally firm polyester fabrics, which I am not particularly fond of for cruising sails. Part of the problem has to do with those Dacron yarns that were discontinued (remember discussing this last month?). One of the great things about many of those yarns is that they shrunk very well. When sail fabric is woven, they then heat shrink it in order to tighten the weave. Some of the old yarn styles would shrink by about 18%, which really tightened the weave a lot. The tighter weaves stretch less on the bias, and so there was less need to use resins to stabilize the stretch in the woven cloth. When yarns don’t shrink well after weaving, the weave is more coarse, leaving larger interstices between yarns of the fabric. It takes more resin (read that a firmer finish) to cut down the bias stretch of these fabrics. Now, having said that, the cloth manufacturers are doing a great job by offering plenty of fabric styles for the sailmaker to choose from. Challenge is offering every conceivable polyester style for the racer/cruiser, including one of the finest warp fabrics for radial sails that is available. Dimension/Polyant also offers a ton of different polyester styles, with many being the main “go to” fabric for dinghies and small keelboats. Many of these are offered in different finishes ranging from their medium firm “MTO” styles to their
rock hard “HMT Plus” finishes. So, while I will continue to beat the drum to my cloth manufacturers for softer fabrics, I will have to go on record as saying that today’s polyester fabrics are fantastic, if not a bit firmer than I would like to see for the cruising sailor. If you are looking for that nice soft cruising fabric of yesteryear, though, you would have to say that today's fabrics aren’t as nice for making cruising sails. It is just too darned stiff. However, these stiffer fabrics, while being a bit more difficult to handle, hold their shape a lot better than their softer counterparts, both when new out of the bag and after a lot of use. You can expect a good decade of service from these Dacron sails, although many will still be seeing use after 20 years, I am sure. The funny thing is, is that we now have some Mylar cruising laminates that have a softer hand than many polyester sails. With this Mylar fabric we can make a soft cloth, low stretch tri-radial laminate sail for not a whole lot more money than a Dacron Crosscut sail. Still, I think that you would have to say that polyester is the best all purpose sailcloth available when you consider the durability, service, and cost ratio compared to other styles of cloth. It is still the King after all of these years and is likely to remain as the top choice for cruising sails (and some racing sails) for years to come!

Marine Law Enforcement Academy Training on the River Below Oregon City From April 28 to May 9, newly recruited marine deputies and troopers from around the state will converge in Clackamas county for the Marine Board’s annual Marine Law Enforcement Academy. Students will learn marine laws, boat handling in motorized and nonmotorized boats, accident and theft investigations, search and rescue and practice administering field sobriety testing on boaters suspected of boating under the influence of intoxicants, among other drills. “This marine academy is a very comprehensive hands-on training and really challenges students mentally and physically,” says Dale Flowers, Law Enforcement Training Coordinator for the Marine Board. The two week training covers everything from knot tying to self-rescue in full utility gear in a pool setting. Students also learn about cold water immersion and hypothermia, first
hand. "We put the students in realworld situations,” Flowers adds. This year's academy will train 27 students from 15 counties, along with students from the Oregon State Police. “When marine deputies are out on the water, they’re our first line contacts with the boating public and serve as educators first, by explaining local safety issues and aim for compliance with marine laws, second. But they also need to be prepared for any emergency the public faces while minimizing risk to their own lives,” Flowers pointed out. The Marine Board contracts with 32 counties and Oregon State Police for marine law enforcement services and as a function of this partnership, the Marine Board provides the training and equipment, and marine law enforcement partners make sure everyone is safe, informed and prepared out on the water. This year’s Marine Academy
will be conducting on-the-water scenarios and boat handling on the Willamette River between the Oregon City Falls and Hog Island. Most of the boat handling drills will take place in the Cedar Oaks Lagoon and Clackamette Lagoon, near the confluence of the Clackamas and Willamette Rivers. Note that scenario boats will be marked with large, blue numbers near the bow. Some boats will be at anchor or beached on the shore. Every attempt will be made to reduce training congestion with anglers in the area, but boaters are asked to stay clear of any boat or shore based operations. Students and instructors will launch from Sportcraft Marina in the morning and remove vehicles and trailers to an a l t e r n a t e l o c a t i o n t o ke e p launching congestion to a minimum for the public.

• Fishing Boats • Fishing Guides • Classic Boats • Liveaboards • Sailboats Portland Fire and Rescue has a new boathouse on the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. The building’s floating platform was designed and supplied by Bellingham Marine.
Portland Fire and Rescue finally has a modern new boathouse on the Willamette River, under the Hawthorne Bridge in downtown Portland. The 4,200 square foot, fully enclosed structure has two 60’ berths with a 5’ wide walkway around the boats. Portland Fire and Rescue Chief Erin Janssens said, “This boathouse is a critical part of a dual land-marine based fire and rescue station designed to withstand an earthquake and provide a quick response to both land and ever-increasing marine emergencies.” Portland Fire and Rescue responds to emergency incidents along 149 miles of navigable waterways of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. Bellingham Marine supplied the floating docks for the project from their plant in Ferndale, WA and supervised the installation. The floating structure is comprised of two main sections. The larger is a post-tensioned unit that provides a 15‘ wide platform at the back of the building for staging of equipment. Outside the boathouse is a triangular shaped “deflector” float with low freeboard whose primary purpose is to keep floating debris from getting lodged under the boathouse floats,” said Bellingham Marine Project Manager, Derrick Ames. The platform and finger piers were assembled in the water at Advanced American’s yard on the Willamette River in St John’s and then towed to the site. A unique underwater truss system was added to provide rigidity to the floating foundation and tie the three finger piers together. “The truss system helps stabilize the floats and create a solid founda-
tion for the building,” said Ames. Bellingham Marine is the world's leading marina designbuild construction company, producing floating dock systems in the USA, Canada, Panama, Australia and New Zealand.
