If you aren't a practicing HTML nerd, Mark, you can send the info to me and I'll make it fit into the old-fashioned style of the coots.org pages.

I do my Web pages "by hand" in a text editor, but I've got a lot of boiler plate that makes it easier.

Thanks for the offer.  I'm figuring to compile information on all the sites I've seen referenced in the various sources I mentioned and then post that and have anyone with interest edit it.  Will take some time, I am assuming. Concentrating now on the possible places for the Portland area cruise that John mentioned for September.  Sort of a beta test. I'll keep folks posted.

Re: Underwater Vision Update

Electri-Cal
 

AARGH !!  I made a mount for holding the sensor on a pole underwater, another trial rig for dry mounting through the hull, with the syn. sapphire watch chrystal lens,  The sensor// camera pickup got lodged in the mount, s I carefully CRACKED the built in lens.  Now to decide if I want to try that again, or go for the as advertised "fishing " camera which is over an inch bigger.  It does have regular and infrared lights for night vision, a very tempting thought for the extra bucks.  Bigger screen, longer range, etc., so if I wanted to start over it basically is another unit, that is more bucks.  Thinking about that  more versatile drop tube or flip up holder for better access without holes or through hull mounts, stay tuned as I will get this set to show those pesky rocks and stuff that eats props.  DARN< DARN< DARN !!!

Non-Powered Coast Boating Opportunity This Weekend

 

If you want an excuse to do some rowing or paddling at the Coast there's a swimming non-event at Eel Lake that could use some safety escorts. Ralph Mohr wrote:

"This weekend, Aug. 8-9, was supposed to be the Eel Lake open water swims, which, of course, have been cancelled. However, a few masters swimmers from various parts of the state, Portland, Corvallis, Bend, are coming to Eel Lake anyway. There will two semi-formal swims, Saturday and Sunday, 9 AM, starting from our usual spot to the north of the boat ramp. We will keep our distance in and out of the water, but we will start as a group. Kayakers and paddle boarders as safety escorts are welcome, too. Come and join us.

"Ralph

"P.S. Water temp the last time I measured it at Eel was 71.9 F."

Eel Lake is north of Tenmile Lakes, between Reedsport and North Bend:

Thanks.  I'm looking forward to more comfortable accommodations than I had in Moonlit Turtle. But I got a lot to learn about docking and handling it in tight spaces, due to the inside helm. I don't mind the dings in my boat, but other folks may not be glad to see me approaching.....   :-)

Underwater Vision Update

Electri-Cal
 

Great morning at Fern Ridge res.,  All systems go, at last, time to check out the camera in the green water,  Nope, not going to show anything that is not green and fuzzy.  If it was on a 20 foot pole the camera might get down there below the salad.  But that is not the purpose, so I guess unless the water is clear this is not of interest.  Couldn't pick up the red hull at a foot away, but at the $ 35. price I didn;t expect wide screen and stereo.  The wide screen $ 25. auto camera still is not working, several wiring questions and "is it that underwater sealed" is still a valid question.  If it doesn't even turn on or show life, it's not a player anyhow.  I have a 2 ft. pole with a mount, but need to make a way longer one to get below the algi line, maybe??

The problem is that the dedicated units are not nearly as small and easy to hide in a snag free mount on the center line !!!  Sooo , I plan to get  the larger size and spend the bucks, then make a mount that is located where I can get to it for docking or cleaning or adjusting the range.  That looks to be some trouble to get right, and cost several times more than my  current one, possibly still will not see that much better.  The cost is a lot more, but maybe be a more workable solution.

HOWEVER -- one or a couple tries furthur first..  Looking at going to the clearer lakes, with the sensor set into a pole that can get lower under water.  That way I can check the visability better, sure as heck needs to be better than today.  So, long story short, I will see if another clearer water location will be better, or if boat movement is just too much for these smaller and easier to mount units.  Would be nice to get better answers before I chip in bigger bucks.

So -- don't buy one of these things yet, if they can't produce a good photo of obstructions it might  be a waste.  I'm still hoping for more that zero success, but not on algi filled lakes, eh ??   Can;t mount inside depth "pucks" on a wood boat without holes or tubes, or unusual mounts faired into the hull.plus the cone of pickup areas still don't point forward to work well.

All the best, stay tuned,   Cal

Rose and I are very interested, we've been looking at an oday daysailer but it's really more of a race boat than we prefer. We're off work on Thursday and Friday, any chance of seeing her?

Nice boat Mark.  Congrats.  I've attached two files containing a bit of info on the Columbia downstream of Cathlamet.  They were stolen from the Cathlamet Yacht Club.  They may be a bit dated but hopefully there is something useful in them for your planning.

Re: Good Girl For Sale

 

If someone is really impatient, I broke the gate code for D Dock, so I can take some snaps of Good Girl, if needed.

I sure hope one of Us gets her!

I’m sure some of you know this boat. Andrew Linn spent a lot of time really sprucing her up with new rigging and a new weighted centerboard.  I’ve had the boat just about a year and have kept her up with new varnish, sparfly and some lines. 

COVID happened and the Salish 100 didn’t, which is what I bought the boat for. I’ve been sailing it in Eugene and have the slip there for another month.  I’m selling the boat for what I paid $1200 which is a fantastic deal.   I’m posting it here before I do a blitz on the internet. It would be cool for one of our own crew to get it.  

Good Girl is a Neptune 16. You can find out all kinds of information about her on the internet, or contact me if you have any questions.  I’ll say it is one of the easiest boats I’ve ever sailed and unbelievably stable - I can stand on the rail, even with the board up and it hardly lists.  It’s just a fantastic boat.

Re: Good Girl For Sale

 

Good Girl has got to be the nicest Neptune/Newport 16 around. I was looking her over Thursday, and admiring how well Joe's kept her up. She's a steal at $1200! Somebody was trying to sell the not nearly so nice one on E Dock for $1700 last year...

Good Girl has got to be about the best boat name around too... :o)
