Re: An Album

 

That's a great collection of photos, Dan, thanks for sharing them. It was a lot more interesting over at the Coast in those days. But for most of the sixties I was too young to drive over there myself and explore, and my dad wasn't interested in junkyards and old outboard shops (Bill's is a coffee shop now, isn't it?), and after I got my license I was interested in less important things for too long...

Your strip-planked rowboat reminded me of the one Jerry Alvey had, though yours was more shapely. Jerry's is in the Museum in Coos Bay now:

With all the sawmills on the Coast it's not surprising that strip-planked boats were built. Boats could be cheaply built using strips could be cut from reject planks from the mills. That's what Chapelle wrote anyway, and he must have known. <g> In the Old Days they never put any goo between the strips.

I stumbled upon this while reading about sonething else altogether. It's not boaty, but it'll probably be of interest to some of you Coots. I was vaguely aware of this sort of craftwork, but had no idea all that they could do!

I'm not sure if Leo mentions the time it sat, but I'm thinking 30-40yrs.

My friend in Eugene showed me this video series.
A british guy has been restoring a 1910 pilot cutter from England called Tally Ho. Designed by Albert Strange.
She is 46ft on the deck, and he's restoring her from the keel bolts up. It's a great video series.
I particularly liked when he lifted 20 tons of boat off the lead keel with 2 bottle jacks and a lot of time and skill. Started in 2017 he is now up to the deck beams. He's doing the work up in Sequim.
He's got courage and a lot of energy.
I've watched the first dozen episodes and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.
Enjoy!

A lovely set of memorable photos.
It's great to see kids getting on with it, I liked the plastic sail, and that edgenailed red cedar boat is very nice.
what was the plastic scavenged from I wonder?
It's great to see kids with that much freedom, much less common these days.
Thanks for sharing those.

Re: Waldo lake

Case Turner
 

Actually the road to Charlton from the Cascade lakes highway is a piece of $h!! it’s faster to go to 58 and up Waldo lake road to get there now.

The road from Waldo to Taylor and Irish is still there, however it requires 4wd. The section from Taylor and Irish to little Cultus is the worst and if wet would require 4 low. We paddled both lakes last summer. A major fire, can’t remember which one burnt through that whole western end and it’s like driving through a moonscape until you are almost to Irish lake.

Enjoy the weekend! You know it’s coming!

I haven't been to Charlton Lake since I camped at the shelter there in 1968, when I was doing Outward Bound.

Whether we were supposed to, or not, several of the groups converged on the Charlton Lake shelter for our last night on the trail. We shared our remaining food and had a good dinner and BS session. A good memory...

Something odd happened that night. It was a nice night, so I was sleeping under the stars (the only alternative was an Army surplus poncho!). As I was drifting off I heard a distant bell, as I got closer to unconsciousness the bell didn't seem to be getting closer. Then, DING! DING!, it was right in my ear! I woke with a start and looked up to a big, equine face right in mine! The horse was as startled as I was, and galloped away. ;o)

The road into Waldo Lake was being improved that summer, perhaps getting ready to be paved. I don't recall if there was a road to Charlton Lake then. It wouldn't have mattered, because we were traveling by shank's mare.

Some years later I drove my '48 Cornbinder pickup past Waldo on the paved road and took a dirt track north to Irish and Taylor Lakes. A beautiful spot, about as wild as you could get and still drive to it. I had a big, heavy, fiberglass canoe with me. Very peaceful. :o) Then a band of hippies camped next to me and stayed up all night playing loud music. <sigh> I cut my stay short, and left by the road down to Little Cultus Lake, which wasn't as bad, but was a less interesting challenge <g>, as the road from Waldo. I suppose both roads are much improved nowadays. Too bad. <g>

When we got to Gold Lake the huckleberries were ripe to perfection, so we picked a bunch, threw them in a billy can with some dried fruit we had left, and some water, and cooked up a heavenly goo, which we had for dessert after a steak dinner. :o) Me and a couple pother guys "borrowed" a boat that was there and paddled around on the lake, maybe using the floorboards? There weren't any oars. Gold Lake is pretty interesting. It's full of goldish algae, and the fish are said to love it.

NOAA Uses Sailing Drones Instead of Ships for Fishery Survey

 

Due to the dread Virus, NOAA has cancelled ship-based fishery surveys:

"NOAA Fisheries plans to use autonomous surface vehicles to collect some critically needed data to support management of the nation’s largest commercial fishery for Alaska pollock.

"...

"Three saildrones, unmanned wind-powered surface vehicles, are en route. They are sailing autonomously, from Alameda, California on a six-week journey to the eastern Bering Sea."
