Broad Reachings by Eric Rouzee Hey Brother, Can You Spare $72,000? Many of my friends, to say nothing of my ever-patient wife, have often heard me pine that, were I 20 years younger and about 100 times the sailor I am, I’d love nothing more than to crew for an entire Volvo Ocean Race. Fortunately for them (and truth be told, me as well) I am in my mid-fifties and neither Ian Walker nor Chris Nicholson are ringing me up. That doesn’t stop a guy from dreaming though. If the boys on the Volvo boats don’t want me, I have other choices available. Like, for starters, the Clipper Round The World Yacht Race. As you probably know, the Clipper Race was dreamed up by legendary Brit sailor Sir Robin Knox-Johnston who, among other accomplishments, gets to list on his resume the first singlehanded, non-stop circumnavigation in history. The race is an 11-month race around the globe, which in and of itself is somewhat unique. What makes it that much more interesting is that crew positions are open to amateurs, 40 percent of whom have never even sailed. All you really have to possess is a sense of adventure, a willingness to leave home and family for months at a time, and presumably the actual physical ability and stamina to

withstand life at a constant angle of heel in some of the more interesting waters around the world. Well, that’s not all you have to possess. Out of curiosity more than anything else (since I’d already promised my wife that I’d never, ever actually go off and do something like the Clipper Race) I sent away for a crew application packet. And a few weeks later, sure enough, an envelope arrived in the mail. I tore into it, and started reading the glossy brochure detailing the upcoming 2015-2016 race. As I got into the details, and read some of the requirements, a glimmering light of hope started to glow inside my brain (my tiny brain, some would argue): I was actually somewhat qualified to do this thing! I had at least as much experience as other crew members, there were men and women who were even older than me, and I was pretty sure I was physically up to the challenge. The challenge I was pretty sure I wasn’t up to was convincing my wife to let me do it. As I’ve said, she’s not all that enthusiastic about my doing something like this, seeing as how, you know, I’d have to risk my life and quit my job. Not necessarily in that order of importance, mind you. Nevertheless, I read on. And then I came to the ulti-

For only $72,000, you too can warm yourself in front of the Southern Ocean. Photo Credit: Annelise Nelson. mate, bigger-than-Mount Everest challenge: the cost. If you want to crew one of these 70-foot ocean racers, the price tag is a mere 45,200 British pounds. A quick currency exchange conversion shows that, as of this writing, that much English cabbage translates into exactly $72,446.53 US dollars. For that, you get all your training, a crew slot for the entire race, a stew of foul-weather gear and some pretty nifty tee shirts. (Note to the Oregon Offshore race committee: I have a radical idea for how you could make next year’s race REALLY profitable).

He keeps going...and going...and going...Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, 75 years young. Photo Credit: Paul Hankey

If you don’t feel like biting off a bill of over $72,000, you can sign up to do just one leg. To do that, you’ll need to shell out 5,000 pounds for training, plus an average of 5,475 pounds for each leg. That comes to a far-more manageable $16,787 US dollars. And no, I don’t know if that includes a tee shirt. Still, if you harbor dreams of competing in a serious round-theworld race, and you don’t mind spending your kids’ college fund, check it out at

Sir Robin: Please Act Your Age! Speaking of the aforementioned Knox-Johnston, it seems you just can’t keep Sir Robin on dry land for very long. This veteran of more serious ocean races than I could name and fit into my allotted column space is, at the spry young age of 75, set to compete in the Route du Rhum. This is the second time he’s sailed in this 3,500 mile classic singlehanded slog across the Atlantic. As you might imagine, KnoxJohnston will be the oldest competitor at the start line on November 2nd. He’s racing his Open 60 Grey Power, the same yacht he sailed around the globe in the 2006/2007 Velux Five Oceans Race when he was a mere lad of 68. Knox-Johnston has been maintaining a very steady schedule of training, including recently competing in the Round the Island Race and the Round Britain and Ireland Race, neither of which is exactly a lunch hook cruise.

“Racing solo on the ocean is where I feel most at home,” said Knox-Johnston. “The Route du Rhum — Destination Guadeloupe is a great race to a lovely island. I won’t win, but I shall have a lot of fun participating.” Personally Sir Robin, I wouldn’t put it past you to win this thing. And I guarantee I’ll be rooting for you.

Closer to Home The local Portland sailing scene has quieted down considerably in the last month, but there’s still racing and socializing to be had. Sailing On Sundays, the informal Sunday race series put on by the Corinthian Yacht Club, is in full swing. If you haven’t taken part, this is informal racing with no entry fee (although registration is mandatory to take part, as is complying with items 20 (Disclaimer of Liability) and 21 (Insurance) specified in the OCSA General Sailing Instructions found in the OCSA Racebook. Check it out, and hone your skills for the 2015 Oregon Offshore, as well as the spring and summer regattas next year. Go over to and check out the events calendar for more information. Also coming right up is the OCSA Awards Banquet, November 8 from 6:00 – 9:30 p.m. at the Portland Yacht Club. You can register for this great event online (again over at $30 per person before November 3 ($40 per person after). Sign up, find your best tropical attire, and we’ll see you there!

Dredges Working Around the Clock to Deepen Channels to Chinook, Ilwaco and Warrenton



Newport Propane Fireplace Safe, Efficient & Economical to Operate

Dredging is proceeding around the clock on the dredging operation near the mouth of the Columbia River on three side channels in Baker Bay and the Skipanon River. The work will deepen the entrance channels to the small ports of Chinook, Ilwaco and Warrenton that have become so shallow, large fishing boats were unable to enter at low water. The work is supervised by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, but performed by the McAmis company, which works all over the US from the Bering Sea to Florida. In each location, McAmis uses a crane equipped with a large clamshell bucket, mounted on a spud barge with long legs that drop down to the bottom to hold it in place. Alongside is a big barge into which the spoils are dropped, plus a tug to move it around and several crewboats. The Chinook project

Another 75,000 cubic yards will be cleared from the Ilwaco channel, and 95,000 from the Skipanon River. In the narrow Skipanon Channel leading to the Warrenton marina and fishboat docks, there is

only limited room for large vessels to pass by the dredging team. The cost is covered by a $2.5 million federal contract that was only approved after a sustained lobbying effort by local officials, businessmen and senators from Washington and Oregon.

A Fast Ride to the Youngs River Falls by Peter Marsh It may not seem like it, but a decade has passed since the Lewis & Clark bicentennial gripped the Astoria area. I remember Fort Clatsop burn down at the worst possible time, re-enactors arriving in dug-out canoes, and even a passenger train running excursions from Portland down the Columbia to Astoria. My contribution was to paddle my kayak up the Youngs River almost to the waterfall at high tide, and run back downriver with the ebb.

Once was enough for my marathon paddle, but when my friend Dave Acton suggested he would like to trailer his small hard-bottom inflatable (RIB) from Vancouver and explore the backwaters near Astoria, l welcomed the chance to see how far we could go towards the falls by outboard motor. We needed plenty of water and settled on Thursday October 9, when tide would reach it highest level of the month, 9.4 feet, at 2.30 p.m. We launched the boat around noon at the Tide Point ramp, a mile east of Astoria, where I was

pleased to find that new owners were re-furbishing the restaurant building with the goal of re-opening by Thanksgiving. This was my first ride in a power boat this small, and I was surprised at how easily the 15 hp motor put us up on a plane. In fact, it seemed as if my weight in the bow actually helped the performance by keeping the hull level! The sun broke through and the incoming tide was filling the sloughs as we raced upstream toward Saddle Mountain, the source of the river. It was named “Mont de la Selle” by American captain John Meares in 1788 and stands 3.288 feet above sea level. He was sailing up the coast looking for the entrance to the Columbia River. Unable to identify a safe channel, he next named the cape on the north side of the river Cape Disappointment. Youngs River was named in 1792 by Englishman Lt. William Broughton of the Vancouver Expedition, and named for Admiral Sir George Young. Broughton and his men rowed as far as the Willamette River, naming all of the landmarks they saw. Lower

The Young’s River Falls feels like a mild spot, and arriving by dinghy takes a high tide and same skill.

Young’s River was a busy place during the lumber boom years with log rafts being assembled and towed to sawmills on the Columbia, but today the only sign of this trade is the occasional piling field. We soon passed the mouth of the Wallooskee River, which is not easy to identify. It is more like a creek, running only a couple of miles past the county fairgrounds. About four miles in, we next passed the Klaskanine River, which is even smaller. Soon the Youngs River diminishes to a creek too, and we slowed down to watch out for snags and shallows. We passed a solitary angler and a few cows grazing the lush meadows until we had to stop the engine and cautiously row our way between the branches of a submerged tree. By this point, I was fairly sure we were near the falls, so we re-started the motor and pressed on until we passed under a road bridge where the falls access road turns off. We had to fight the current for the last 100 yards, before we stepped off the boat and into a few inches of water. We guided the boat through a narrow channel a foot deep, rowed a little further, then decided it was time to start hiking! After tying the boat to a tree, we set off along the river bed and were soon rewarded with a sight of the falls through the trees.

Having taken a few risks along the way, we felt almost as impressed as the first explorer to see the falls, Patrick Gass, a member of the Lewis and Clark expedition, who was leading a hunting party on March 1, 1806. (There is no mention of anyone else from the corps visiting the site before they began the return to civilization three weeks later.) Depending on how you measure it, the falls drop about 60 feet, into a pool that is only 11-12 feet above sea level. It is quite impressive, especially if there has been rain recently. I remembered that ten years before, I had dragged my kayak up to the pool, hopped in and paddled vigorously until the bow was under the falling water, then let the current push me back. Our return journey was a good deal faster. With the tide dropping quickly, it took only half an hour and we were back at the ramp. So, we still had time to explore the wreck of the old TJ Potter, where the massive wooden ribs are still standing above the keel, thanks to the vast number of long bolts that held it together. In its heyday, this 234-foot side-wheeler was one of the fastest and most luxurious steamboats in the Pacific Northwest. It was built in 1888 and finally abandoned on the foreshore between Tide Point and the old Astoria Yacht Club in 1920.

14th Annual Set Sail for a Cause Raises Over $28,000 for Leukemia Cup Oregon Women’s Sailing Association welcomed over 200 guests and participants for the 2014 Set Sail for a Cause. Everyone enjoyed being both on and off the water the weekend of September 20-21, for the Set Sail for a Cause-Leukemia Cup Regatta and family fun sail. Saturday’s regatta had plenty of wind for an exciting race and the temperature was perfect for the pirate market fair on land. Located at the Red Lion on Jantzen Beach, the Tall Ship Royaliste and their pirates wowed guests of all ages. The weekend events wrapped up months of fundraising by skippers and their crews, and it was topped off with the Gosling Rum awards dinner and silent auction at the Red Lion’s JB’s Lounge. The final tally was over $28,000 raised for blood cancer research. Awards dinner attendees were especially pleased to learn that a significant portion of the money raised actually stays in our local area to fund research at Oregon Health Sciences University, a national leader in researching treatments for blood cancer. A short presentation by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society featured the sister of Honored Skipper Conor Oliver speaking about her family’s experience during Conor’s treatment. Oregon Women’s Sailing Association and Small Yacht Sailing Club of Oregon (SYSCO) were the official hosts of the SSFC, with SYSCO coordinating the races. America’s Cup raffle winner is Jake Rehlinger. Jake and a guest will enjoy two round trip airfare tickets to San

Francisco, a four night’s stay at the Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf and a two- hour sail on the 76’ IACC yacht that team Oracle trained on for the 2002 America’s Cup. A major event like this required lots of volunteers in addition to the terrific support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and a group of national sponsors. “It was the dedication of committee members, participants and volunteers who made this year’s Set Sail for a Cause a huge success”, said Nikole Kolander, Set Sail for a Cause Committee Chair with Oregon Women’s Sailing Association. Local event sponsors included the Red Lion Hotel—Jantzen Beach, The Tall Ship Royaliste, Acadamia Duelitoria, Full Sail Brewing, Danish Marine, Salty’s, West Marine, Blue Light Band and Foster Farms. Many other businesses and individuals donated

items to the silent auction or provided in-kind services which made a significant impact on the success of the event. Core committee members who worked on the event include Julie Anderson, Brent and April Hubbard, Debbie Graham, Debra Burke, MC Rydzewski, Dana Toureau, Gabrielle Dowding, Ellen Van Rossum, Ashley Paterson. Volunteers donated Wine for the wall of wine, decorating help, auction items and help with all of the market fair games and prizes. A special thanks to Ron Micjan with Columbia Marine Assistance for offering his water rescue services throughout the weekend, which came in handy a few times.

cleaned up by removing any ugly blood, rust, or mildew stains.”

Cleaning Sails As the fall weather starts to turn a bit uncomfortable, many sailors start to “put their boat away” for the season. As discussed in the past couple of FWN issues, many sailors take advantage of this time to get Dale Waagmeester their sails checked over and repaired so that they are ready for action on the first nice weekend next spring. This is also a good time to get your sails cleaned up by removing any ugly blood, rust, or mildew stains. At this time of year, we get asked quite often about how to remove stains from sails, so it seems like a good topic to cover in this month’s column. One option is to get your sails professionally cleaned. On the east coast, many lofts have their own soaking tubs, some with built in water jets to act like an agitator in a washing machine. Some lofts have concrete pads where they lay out the sails and run industrial floor scrubbers over them. Some lofts even have big industrial washing machines that they use to clean sails. For some reason, I can’t think of any lofts in the Northwest that have in-house cleaning facilities. Why this would be popular in the east and not in the west is beyond me. Luckily, we do have a sail cleaning service in the Pacific Northwest by the name of Clean Sails. Most NW sailmakers that I know use the service of Clean Sails to get their customers’ sails washed, including our loft. The standard price of cleaning working sails is 88 cents a square foot, plus shipping to and from the Clean Sails plant on Bainbridge Island. So, a Ranger 20 mainsail would cost approximately $88 to clean, a Catalina 30 mainsail would cost around $200, and cleaning a Cascade 36 main would be in the $275 range. Not particularly inexpensive, especially when you start dealing with large genoas, but Clean Sails does a very nice job and they can remove much of the dirt, mildew, rust, and green algae that can accumulate on a sail over the years. Nylon sails, such as spinnakers and drifters cost 30 cents per square foot to clean. I wish that Clean Sails had been around when Mount St. Helens blew. That volcanic ash was impossible to get out of sails. My wife (then girlfriend) spent many afternoons laying out sails on my back yard lawn, scrubbing them as hard as she could to remove the ash, in many cases without much luck. My mother told me right then and there that I would be a fool not to marry this hard working girl and, of course, I did! Having said that, many of our customers want to clean their sails themselves, or at least remove an annoying stain on their own. That is the topic that we will cover next but first a disclaimer: just about any solvent, cleaning fluid, acid, or bleach that you use to clean a sail is worse for the sail than the stain that you are trying to remove. The products that we are going to mention over the rest of this article are considered to be industry standard for removing dirt and stains from sails, and we have used them all with success. However, if used improperly, many of these cleaners can damage your sail. USE THESE PRODUCTS AT YOUR

“This is also a good time to get your sails

OWN RISK AND FOLLOW PROPER SAFETY PRECAUTIONS. Now that we have that out of the way, let’s get started. Virtually all of these products should not be left on your sail. We recommend repeated rinsing. Better yet, clean the sail surface repeatedly with mild liquid detergent and rinse thoroughly after each washing. Dirt and Salt: Use a soft bristle brush (stiff brushes can damage the stitching) and some mild liquid detergent (not harsh power detergents) and water. Rinse well. Blood: This is a real common stain on sails (gotta love those halyard meat hooks). Soak the stained area for 30 minutes or so in a solution of one part Clorox bleach and 10 parts cold water. Scrub and repeat if necessary. Wash and rinse the area thoroughly. Mildew: Most mildew can be removed by scrubbing the area with a soft bristle brush and hot, soapy water. More stubborn mildew stains may need to be scrubbed with a solution of Clorox bleach (see proportions above). Wash and rinse thoroughly. Some Mylar sails, particularly cruising Mylar sails, can get mildew in between the taffeta and the Mylar layers. This is VERY difficult to remove. Challenge Sailcloth markets a cleaner called CS-530 that is very good at removing the mildew from in between laminate layers, and it is also very good for removing green algae and dirt. We can sell you a box of this but you have to be pretty serious about cleaning a lot of sails, as a twenty pound box retails for almost $200. Oil, Grease, Tar and Wax: Stain removers and solvents can be necessary to remove these from sails. We have found that a solvent called Toluol or Toluene can work very well on oil stains. Use a paper towel folded in a few layers as a blotter underneath the stain and rub a Toluol soaked paper towel over the stain. Then turn the sail over and do this from the other side. It might be necessary to do this multiple times. Do this in a well ventilated area using goggles and gloves. Toluol/ Toluene is nasty stuff. Do not leave this liquid on the sail for any period of time. Wash and rinse repeatedly to make sure that all signs of this solvent are removed. Note: Toluol/Toluene is used to make methamphetamine, so it is a controlled substance. You might have to give the paint store your life story in order to get them to sell it to you. Rust: This is a difficult stain to remove. We have found that soaking the stained area for 20 minutes or so in a mixture of oxalic acid (1 part oxalic acid to 20 parts water) can work well. Sometimes several soaks are necessary. You can get oxalic acid at some drug stores. Oxalic acid is used in teak bleach, so you can often find it on the shelf at West Marine. Sometimes West Marine has sail cleaning kits available that have oxalic acid included for tough stains. I have used actual teak bleach on some of these stains with success. I particularly like the gel type, as instead of running all over the sail surface like water, it stays put over the applied area. Do not leave this mixture on the sail for extended periods. Clean and rinse REPEATEDLY to make sure that the oxalic acid has been completely removed.

Paint and Varnish: Acetone or M.E.K (methyl ethyl ketone) should remove most paint stains. These, too, are nasty solvents so wear goggles and gloves and use in a well ventilated area. Varnish can be removed with alcohol. Sail Numbers: Sail numbers sometimes come off very easily and other times they can be one of the most difficult items to remove from your sail. Typically, the longer a number is in place on a sail, the tougher it is to remove it. If the numbers pull off fairly easily without leaving a residue, go buy yourself a lottery ticket because it is your lucky day. More often than not, after removing a sail number there is a sticky residue left that makes it look like the number has never been removed. This residue can be EXTREMELY difficult to get rid of. We have found Toluol (see above in the Oil and Grease section) to be about the best solvent to remove number adhesive. Liberally apply Toluol to the effected area and let it soften up the adhesive. Then scrape as

much residue as you can from the sail surface with a putty knife. After that it takes tons of Toluol and tons of elbow grease to get the rest of the adhesive off of the sail. Again, VENTILATION, GLOVES, and GOGGLES are the order of the day. Wash and rinse repeatedly. You will most likely find that after you wash and rinse you will need another application or two (or three) of Toluol. A WORD OF CAUTION—Be extremely careful about using Toluol on Mylar sails. If the solvent is left on the surface of a Mylar sail for any length of time it can actually start softening the glue that is holding the Mylar laminate together. You can actually smell the laminate glue as it begins to soften. Keep Toluol exposure to a minimum on laminate sails. That pretty much covers the most typical stains that a sailor will see on their sails. Remember to be careful with the solvents, and rinse, rinse, rinse. Even soap residue is not good to leave on a sail. Have fun and be careful.




In the Galley with Capt. Sandra Thoma Fall Sailing: No Hurry Curry When Roy and I first planned to take Tranquility to Bellingham for the winter, I thought I would single-hand. It’s only 20-some nautical miles to Bellingham, after all, and mostly waters I’m familiar with. Should be easy-schmeezy – right? I considered the last time I single-handed what I thought would be an easy 20 nautical miles, Tranquility and I ended up doing a screaming downwind run in 20 knots of wind. TQ screamed at 10.5 knots (over the ground) north through Colvos Pass, and emerged in front of the Vashon Island ferry. Thankfully, I’m tall and could reach the wheel with one foot, balanced on the other, hauling in the main so I wouldn’t tear the boom off the mast when I jibed to avoid being run over. While executing that maneuver I realized why people have crew. That wasn’t an experience I was anxious to repeat! The forecast for TQ’s move to her winter home this year called for heavy rain. We would be navigating commercial traffic in busy Rosario Straits. There was a good chance it would be in the pea soup fog, so I was grateful when my dear friend and crewmate of many years, Kitty, signed on for this delivery. The forecast looked to be just plain wrong when we left Deer Harbor. It was a lovely morning. Leaves were just starting to turn. Pink clouds smeared across the sky. Pockets of fog spilled down off the tops of hills and fell between rocky shores. A ferry disappeared behind Crane Island, and re-appeared in Wasp Passage. We made our way down Harney Channel, past the Orcas ferry landing. I waved at the ferry. Roy would be boarding it soon, on his way to pick us up in Bellingham. Kitty and I shared a breakfast of hot cereal and warm croissants, as we motored past picturesque

Grindstone Bay and Foster Point. I noted our position on the chart, checked the radar and refilled my coffee. We smiled at each other, taking in the scenery. Then we noted the small islands we’d just passed had disappeared. Our smiles faded. Uh oh, Kitty said, so much for our lovely day. A solid black wall was behind us, and charging our way. Maybe we can outrun it, I said. Kitty laughed. Our visibility diminished to near zero as we entered Obstruction Pass. The pass is less than a mile wide on either side, and we couldn’t see even a hint of land. Heck, we could barely see the bow of the boat. The rain let up a little as we made our way through the pass, but was replaced with solid fog. As we approached the dog-leg turn in the midpoint of the pass, it looked like Rosario Strait was also pea soup. I cringed at the thought of crossing that rock strewn, commercial-traffic-busy body of water, even with our instruments to guide us. I considered our bailout options. Rosario Resort was around the corner, behind us. In the fog and the rain, if we turned around, it would be in the soup, in a narrow pass, and not knowing what might be coming up behind us. If we continued, we would bear almost directly east after leaving the pass, then follow a string of audible and lighted markers to Bellingham Bay. I decided to continue. It felt like an hour later, but it was probably only minutes, when we heard the gong of the first red buoy. It marked Lydia Shoal. And we could see it clearly. The wall of rain and fog was stuck in the pass – and we were free! We found an added bonus in the Straits as well – wind! Kitty and I unfurled the sails and cut the engine. Instead of rain and fog and diesel fumes, we had the swooshing of water and the crisp flapping of sails. The fog stayed behind us for the rest of the

trip. It was very pretty from a distance, as it blanketed the tops of Cypress and Lummi Islands. We sailed on a broad reach into Bellingham Bay, jibing between container ships at anchor. Squalicum Harbor greeted us with a light blue, cloud scattered autumn sky. Kitty and I took turns making lunch between jibes. The savory smell of lemon-pepper pasta filled the cockpit, making our stomachs rumble and reminding us that we need food as much as we need wind. And I was reminded we have crew, not just for safety and to share in the tasks of running the ship, but also to share in the beauty and adventure of sailing, and the delight of a warm dish under a crisp, white-sail-filled autumn sky. This warm, savory dish is my own invention. The recipe will feed four and can easily be extended to serve more. It would be a great make-ahead dish that could be re-heated in a baking pan in the

boat oven (think Oregon Offshore).

Be sure to not overcook. Set aside. Add the coconut milk and squash to the pot. Simmer until the squash is tender when poked with a fork. Add meatballs, peas and corn and bring to simmer again.

For Paddlers, It’s High Season for Safety It may be sunny outside with blue skies above, but waters are deceptively cold and unforgiving in the fall. For paddlers with just a few inches of freeboard to spare, getting wet this time of year can have serious consequences, so the BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water has these seven tips for fall paddlecraft safety. Know how to re-board: All paddlecraft are different, so before you hit a lonely, remote stretch of river or bay, learn (in a safe place) how to get back in the boat quickly and efficiently as hypothermia is a threat that increases by the minute. Some paddlers add extra floatation inside the boat as it can help reboarding. (Tip: this can be accomplished simply by inflating a beach ball or purchasing aftermarket float bags). If you do ever fall out and can’t get back in, stay with the kayak or canoe—it’s a bigger target for rescuers to see. Don’t keep it a secret: Tell people where you’re going by filing a float plan. It could be as simple as telling your spouse, in writing, where you are going and what time you plan to return. Writing it down makes it become habit. Be as specific as you can—this isn’t the time to forget to mention

Halloween Cruise at Sand Island, St. Helens The 2014 Halloween Cruise at Sand Island took place on the weekend of October 18- 19, with nearly 70 boats braving a forecast of very wet weather. They brought over 200 people to the island for a fun-filled weekend of Halloween activities. With a pumpkin carving contest, a costume contest, an appetizer contest and a very popular treasure hunt, sponsored by the Compass Rose Cruising Club, the weekend was one filled with activities for kids of all ages. Later, trick-or-treating on the docks among the highly decorated boats, inspired by wild imaginations, entertained young and old alike. And if that weren't enough, the Columbia River Yacht Club (CRYC) brought their sternwheeler Paddlefish boat to the cruise and hosted a “Jack is Back” scary Titanic sequel on the ship. OMG, was it awesome, and the CRYC won first place for their extraordinary efforts. Jon and Cindy Bake, of the Lazy B IV once again hosted a great event. The Compass Rose Cruising Club, who have made the Treasure Hunt a favorite event at the Halloween Cruise, have handed the torch to the Tyee Yacht Club. We all look forward to seeing how Tyee can improve upon an already great event, you should too. You can get more information about next year’s cruise by visiting, or visiting our Facebook page, Columbia River Halloween Cruise. The Facebook page has some great pictures posted to the 2014 Halloween Cruise album by Kathy Kettner. Next year, on the weekend of October 24th and 25th, the St. Helens Yacht Club and the Dolphin Yacht Club will host the event for all comers. Mark your calendar now, you won’t want to miss next year’s event!

you’re heading to your hidden fishing hole two miles off the beaten channel. Understand the basic rules of navigation: You may not be out there with icebreakers just yet, but there may still be some recreational boating traffic and potential ship traffic. The simple challenge is the smallest boats are hardest to see. One simple tip to help visibility is to spray the tips of your paddles a bright color. Paddlers also can help themselves by understanding some basic rules of navigation. Don’t leave without a bailer: With low freeboard, paddlecraft are prone to getting water aboard. Once it starts, it’s only a matter of time before your canoe or kayak becomes ever lower to oncoming waves. Keep water out and buoyancy up by having a bailer ready (Tip: tie one to each seat). Thermal up or down: Neoprene gloves, a drysuit or wetsuit tops and hats are the ultimate protection in retaining body heat this time of year. However, have outdoor gear that offers versatility by being able to cool down or warm up when appropriate. Even if it may feel like summer, never leave shore in just a t-shirt and shorts.

It only takes just a short change of weather or a dunking to drench you and the hypothermia clock starts ticking. A bright colored rain parka can also be seen at great distances. Going remote? Go Personal Locator Beacon (PLB): Advances in GPS technology have brought down the cost of personal locator beacons, but if your budget is tight you can still rent a PLB from the BoatUS Foundation for $45 weekly, plus shipping. There are no additional subscriber fees and paddlers going to remote locations can order online at epirb or call 888-663-7472 (Tip: mention code “DISC10” for a 10% discount on the weekly PLB rental rate through December 1, 2014). Keep it secure up top: If you need to get your favorite kayak or stand-up paddleboard to the lake on your car or truck’s roof this fall, go to for a quick read on the three basic types of roof rack systems and ways to safely tie down the load. Your kayak has no desire to meet the road or become a hazard for oncoming vehicles.

True or False? Take the Boat Winterizing Quiz You’re putting the boat away for winter. So what half-truth, old wive’s tale or tall story have you heard about winterizing a recreational boat? Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) helps to set the record straight. Ethanol (E10) fuel and engines: If a boat has a built-in gas tank, it’s recommended to leave the tank as full as possible over the winter with a smidgen of room for fuel expansion. TRUE: Leaving the tank nearly full limits the amount of moisture that can potentially condense inside on the tank’s walls as outside temperatures fluctuate, preventing phase separation of ethanol (E10) fuel. Note one caveat: If your boat is stored in a rack system or indoor storage, check with the marina. They may require you to empty the tank to minimize the risk of fire. TIP: Never plug a fuel vent. Ever. Ethanol and phase separation: Come springtime, any phase-separated gasoline in the tank can be fixed by adding a fuel stabilizer or additive. FALSE: Once gasoline phase separates, that’s it. Kaput. End of story. The only solution is to have a pro remove the contaminated fuel and water mixture and start anew -- a difficult, hazardous and costly task for boats with built-in fuel tanks. However, it’s critical to use a fuel stabilizer each fall to help keep fuel fresh over the winter, keep corrosion at bay and to

This boat was “winterized” by placing a space heater in the engine room. While afloat in the slip, it caught fire when the extension cord used to power the heater shorted.

help prevent the onset of phase separation. TIP: Put the stabilizer in before you nearly fill the tank for its long winter nap. This will allow stabilizer to fully course through the fuel system as you run the engine when filling with antifreeze. Freeze damage: Because it’s cold up there, BoatUS insurance claims for engine block freezing come from northern climates. FALSE: While there are quite a few claims from the colder climates, many boat insurance freeze damage claims also come from southern, temperate states hit by an unexpected freeze or when space heaters fail due to sudden storm power loss. In the northern climes, storm power outages also are to blame for engine block freeze related claims, however, both areas of the country have

their fair share of winter freeze claims due to one reason: the failure to follow winterizing procedures. TIP: Don’t let your buddy do the job – it’s a common refrain BoatUS claims staff hears every spring after a cracked block is discovered. Having your marina winterize your boat and systems may offer better protection if there is an issue come springtime. Another option is adding ice and freeze insurance to your boat insurance – most insurers do not charge much for it, but there are deadlines to purchase (BoatUS offers it for as little as $25 to its insured members until October 30). Space Heaters: It’s okay to “winterize” the boat by leaving a space heater running onboard. FALSE: In addition to the sudden power outage problem, every winter BoatUS sees fires from heaters, plugs and cords, and from heaters that were left running on unattended boats. Unless you live in Hawaii or the Florida Keys, BoatUS recommends winterizing your engine if you will be laying up the boat for even a few weeks to lessen the chances of sudden freeze damage. TIP: Save time and make winterizing easier by installing an engine flushing system — typically a simple valve with a connection for a garden hose along with an anti-freeze pick-up hose/strainer -- on your engine.
