Anyone else?

John - thanks for updating the list. A few to add for me.

"Spindrift" -- 17.5' Spira "Katchemak" v-bottomed Carolina Dory - outboard sport fishing boat. In process

"Shredder" -- Puddle Duck Racer hull #77

"Grace" -- Thomas 13.5' fiberglass pulling boat

If I ever finish off the 2 s.o.f. kayaks, I'll name them & add them.

Cheers,

Bob, sounds like fun and I'd like to join the group.  Could we possibly carpool together from Corvallis?  I have a kayak rack on my Jetta so I could drive.  (Assuming of course you are planning on paddling a kayak.)

Thanks for the post, John.

I will be there!  It is a great place to explore.  You can go inland and it is first a major wetland surrounding Beaver Creek, and eventually farm land.  Go under Hwy 101 towards the ocean and you can get through the old state park all the way to the sandy beach.  Everything.

Don't worry about a little rain.  Andrew's writeup show the weather is part of the fun:

I would love a Bandsaw :-)

The interior is something that develops as you use the boat anyway.  I built mine to plan, painted it all white and know i’ll be modifying after i get hours in the boat.

Im considering building a Goose down the line.

Beaver Creek Messabout Next Saturday (Jan. 16)

 

This is the Beaver Creek on the Coast between Newport and Waldport. There's a launch ramp at Brian Booth State Park (known as Ona Beach State Park until 2013), but the creek isn't very big, so only small, shallow boats are suitable for the messabout. I went up the Creek several years ago in the prototype McKenzie Skiff with an electric trolling motor:

Hope you can make it!

Sunday messabout

 

I don't have a boat that can be launched into Kirk Pond (the June Bug is being rejunenated), but I'll pass this on to the Coots group to see if anybody wants to join Kathryn. Kirk Pond is the "borrow pit" across Clear Lake Road from the dam. It's fed by seepage through the dam and a "Yazoo type" creek runs out of it paralleling the Long Tom. Several Decades ago me and a friend went exploring down the creek in a Heavy fiberglass canoe, until we got tired of dragging it over beaver dams and fallen trees... There's no launch ramp at Kirk Pond.

Hey there!
Had a delightful time yesterday at Kirk Park - the little pondy area that
Fern Ridge empties into. Not too cold and calm. Saw two eagles, an egret,
and some widgeons. Very peaceful. And the sliding seat in the rowboat
completely transformed the whole experience. John, methinks you need
something with low draft to paddle about in! Anyway, Sunday looks
promising weather- wise. Anyone up for a little adventure?

Re: [MessaboutW] Invasive Critter Permits

We now have 4 permits. Originally when the law came out kids 13 and younger didn't need the permit. That was omitted. Now everyone gets one. I zip tie them to the boats when we are using them so they are in plain view. Only been stopped once and the was at Paulina.

Re: [MessaboutW] Cousteau's legendary CALYPSO is to be refitted and sail again

lon wells <lononriver@...>
 

Sadly as a expert in old rotten boats. I do believe the one person that said everything was rotten or broken.  A boat owner has a moral obligation to send only a truly seaworthy ship offshore. While the standards for a static display ship would be much lower and the Calypso could be saved for a museum to honor Jacques Cousteau and the adventures of Calypso and to continue his teachings about the Oceans.  Back in the early 1980's I was on the USS Constitution which was in Boston Yards Dry Dock. Some speculate that there is not a original piece of wood left on the Constitution and that 200 years of high standard maintenance have resulted in the whole ship being replaced over time.

Don't forget that you need one to operate an "unpowered" (sail is

by getting yours direct from the Marine Board onlin. You can also get a
two year permit so you don't have to remember to get one next year. <g>
