Boat Storage

David Graybeal
 

I have too many boats. Several on trailers. And too few places to park them.

And I am very seriously considering taking on another. But I can't unless I find somewhere handy and cheap/free to park it. The only place left is my own driveway. Which notion has been vetoed by the High Command. She says, "I don't care how many boats you have - as long as none of them live in our driveway." I considered suggesting I park it in the front yard... but doubt THAT idea will gain any traction either.


So I'm looking for ideas. Anyone have a spare parking spot in or near NE Portland?  Anyone have any ideas for such a spot? What I'd love is 4 such spots - in order to consolidate and get them all closer , but I know I'm dreaming. So at this point, I'd be quite happy with one.

All thoughts welcome - even Dirt's hairbraine... errrr, that is...  'creative' ideas!! <G>

Re: Port Townsend WBF

 

Claire-

The flyers turned out very nice -- much better than I expected when you said they were going to be printed on matte paper. Turns out the paper was a smooth finish. :o) I grabbed a handful of them. Thanks!

We all seemed to have a good time at the Festival, despite a rainy sail-by ("moody" photos <g>). Sorry I missed you.

Good evening all,
I hope that those of you who will be attending the Wooden Boat Festival will find a moment to stop by the Small Craft Advisor/Duckworks booth and thank Josh and Company for allowing us to put our new West Coast Small Boat organizations brochure on their counter for folks to enjoy and take for future reference.  Very generous as always!
thanks and
have a great time at the festival

Lunch Messabout Next Week near Albany

 

Mini-Messabout

Freeway Lakes - 6000 Three Lakes Rd SE, Albany, OR 97322

Thursday, 19 September 2019

Meet around 12 Noon with a bring-your-own lunch get-together on the westerly of the 3 lakes. Paddle under I-5 to get there.
Suitable for smaller boats. There is enough room for sailing, if the boat is small. Paddles and oars work well, also.

Map: https://mapcarta.com/23800942

We won't let a few showers chase us away. Parking is at the northeast corner just off Three Lakes Rd.

Coots and Lower Columbia TSCA Fall Equinox Messabout

 

From Allen B in Cathlamet:

Attached is a flyer for our upcoming Fall Equinox Small Boat Messabout.  We’ll be holding the messabout at the Elochoman Slough Marina in Cathlamet, WA starting Friday afternoon (or when folks start showing up) September 20 and we’ll wrap up when folks start going home on Sunday, September 22.  We hope you can attend.  It will be a rather unstructured event consisting of just having fun in our boats – motor, sail, paddle, or row.   The chapter will have a rented campsite at the marina with our canopy set up and a campfire both nights.  Saturday evening we’ll have a hotdog roast around the campfire with the basics provided by the chapter.  Bring a side dish, chips, desert, or whatever, if you’d like.  BYOB.

For folks from out of town, you are welcome to sleep on your boats or rent a camp site, yurt, or cabin at the marina.  Depending on the size of the campsite we rent there may be room for a couple small backpacking tents.  Attend if you can and be sure to bring your boat and sense of adventure.  Stop in anytime during the three days if you can’t make the entire weekend.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give me a call at 805-208-7335.

I hope to see you all there.

Allen Bennett

Don't forget you have boats at my ranch in Beavercreek.  i suppose I could take another but you would have to clear weeds around the existing one(s) and make sure we have access to the back pasture.

In that case, once he clears the weeds, David can put a couple more boats in between the current ones! ;)

Hi, Frank! When are you coming back to God's Country? I'll bet David _did_ forget about those other boats he's got out in Beavercreek. <g>

Naaah... haven't forgotten them. Just haven't done anything with them. They were 2 of the 4 mentioned.

So, yeah, Frank - when are you coming back? At least for a visit??

Lunch Messabout Changed Venue! (Next Thursday)

 

Ignore the message about the Lunch Messabout next Thursday, Sept. 19. Dennis B visited Freeway Lakes today and reported that they're very low and choked with weeds. I drove by after lunch and noticed that there's a channel through the weeds about the width of a canoe under the Three Lakes Road bridge, and lotsa weeds in the first two lakes. :o(


So, now we're gonna meet at Richardson Park on the NW corner of Fern Ridge Reservoir. Plan on having lunch about noon. You may want to launch earlier. Info on Fern Ridge can be found here:

Cheap and/or Free Boats

 

Scott Coleman told me he has a Stevenson Weekender in his yard that needs a home. He was busy pulling boats when I called, but it sounds like it may not survive much longer if nobody gets it.

John Lawless will _give_ his SF Bay Mercury to a GOOD home. It's a very nice boat, but has some rot problems in the plywood bottom -- and who knows what else when you get it apart. It's in storage at Scott's yard.

I'll go inspect the boats Monday.

Redwing 21 Pilothouse for sale

Bob Miller
 

Last week I had a buyer (full asking price) in San Diego (male) from my ad in SCA. We were negotiating delivery and payment options. We paused over the weekend because he had a houseguest. She turned out to be a long-lost love who he had been communicating with since sometime after the death of his wife last year. At the end of the weekend, SHE proposed to Him (at age 70)! This week he accepted. The boat was not part of the deal. How can I not be happy for him? But no boat sale.

So, the Redwing is up for grabs again. The asking price is $10,750. I will discount it 10% to $9,675 for anyone in our wonderful small boat groups reading this email. 

Info below and pictures attached.

The boat was built in 2009 by Mike Beemer, Department Chair,  Marine Manufacturing & Technology Center of Excellence, Skagit Valley College, Anacortes, WA. It is a pilothouse version of a Karl Stambaugh design from Chesapeake Marine Design.

I have not cruised with this boat. I have a camp cruising boat (a Drascombe Longboat). This boat was meant to get my wife engaged. Health problems have curtailed that. We finally decided to sell. Marty Loken owned it previously and trailered it up to Desolation Sound and cruised it there, as well as locally. Best cruising speed is about 6 knots. Fuel consumption about 1/2 gal per hour at 1/2 throttle.

It comes with trailer, marine chair (seen in picture), canvas zipped and windowed curtain (1/2 seen in picture), Taylor-made Shade umbrella (seen in  picture), Lowrance GPS, cushions, porta-potti, 20 hp Honda 4 stroke outboard (just serviced), internal 20 gal fuel tank (drained of old fuel).  Less than 500 miles on trailer tires.

Specifications:
Length: 21'-0"
Beam: 7'-6"
Draft: 1'-4"
Weight: 1800 lbs

Cheers,
Bob

I want to so badly it hurts.  I am dealing with one disaster after another here and that doesn't even include the hurricanes.  Unless things there go south I doubt I could even think of a visit before 2020. I might come during the Republican convention in Charlotte as I could rent out my house and there would be boat shows to take my wife to so she could learn what she got herself into marrying a coot.  If you plan to out the ranch text me so I can let Jim, the tenant, know you are coming.  Unlike some of the neighbors he is unlikely to shoot you but would appreciate the courtesy of a notice.

Re: Redwing 21 Pilothouse for sale

 

Looks like a real good boat, Bob. I hope you find a good home for it.
