CROD Article

 

During the recent Multnomah County Library messabout I stumbled upon this early article about Columbia River One Designs (CRODs) in a bound volume of 1934-1935 Pacific Motor Boats. Alas, I didn't note the exact issue:

We saw the two CRODs the CRMM has in storage again last Friday during the Museum field trip.

I will try to. Might even pick up a boat when I finish moving around. Really appreciated you coming up. (And glad you got to talk to Chad. Lon used to call him "the pirate of the Columbia". He's a serious boat guy, just not wooden boats).

It was, indeed. And we got to meet Quinn's new baby. 1.5 years old.

Lon's ashes

Teresa Pittman
 

We just spread Lon's ashes from the Vashon ferry by Point Defiance. They planned to stop the ferry briefly and we were supposed to just drop the bag. But I let them fly loose instead.

Quinn and his son Abe, his nephews Dean, David and Lance were all here. Fair winds, my love.

Radio and Navigation Workshop, March 21st in Toledo

 

Some details on the workshop:

http://www.coots.org/mb/Electro/

It'll start with proper VHF radio usage and etiquette, then Bob will do a presentation on Coastal Navigation in the Age of the Cell Phone, then I'll do a section on using OpenCPN and Navionics, the two cheap nav programs for mobile devices.

There will be opportunities to mix and mingle and help each other out with our devices. There's good pizza across the street, mooring costs only an optional donation to the Boathouses, and vehicle camping is free in the parking lot. The tides are favorable for a trip up the Yaquina River on Sunday for those wanting to make a weekend of it.

Our annual visit to the Columbia River Maritime Museum's private stash
of boats and artifacts will be Friday, February 28th. Like many museums,
most of the Good Stuff is in storage, and this is an opportunity to take
a look at it.

We'll meet for lunch at the Rogue brewpub on Pier 39 at 11:30. There's
also a small cannery museum there. We'll then meet in the lobby of the
Museum about 1:15, and you can join us there if you don't want to do the

John,

I'm planning on being there with my 19' Bartender. Had a great time last year. Yea, the weather will most likely be wet and cold, but there probably isn't a better time to be in Depoe Bay. There's not too many visitors in mid-April, beautiful storm clouds and surf, and you can walk into Gracie's or any other restaurant with no wait.
