Harvey, I enjoy encountering ships on the river.

Sometimes the channel can be very narrow, and one must decide which side of him you will pass on.

For their size, the big ships leave relatively low wakes, at the low speed in the channel, but they still can leave behind a series of 4’ waves far from the center of travel.

The biggest wakes are from dead-heading tugs, who move a lot of water as they speed along.

Hi Harvey,

There is no VTS down around these parts. Just monitor 13 and AIS and you'll be good. If you do want to contact the USCG, try Sector Columbia River in Warrenton, not Portland. While I'm sure Portland would be helpful, it's the MSU (Marine Safety Unit), they are not the ones you hear on the radio.

We spent a few days in Cathlamet this past summer and it was great. Fun exploring on the dink too! Enjoy the gathering!

Rob

HI Rob,

Thanks for that info. Good to see you here.

I spent some time on the phone today and you confirmed what I learned. AIS is your friend there. VHF 13 is the likely contact channel (Bridge to Bridge), and VHF 14 is for contact with the Lock Control at the Dams.

Surprised to find there is not VTS on the Columbia Bar to Portland stage.

Jaynie and I have a chance to join this gathering due to some events cancellations. We would love to finally meet some of you. We would probably come down by water from jantzen beach marina, so a pretty good haul. Are you all still thinking these dates are holding or ??
Thanks

Onward, great to have you join us. Looking forward to it. Some of us will be on the water (I will be launching at Kalama, maybe Thurs.), so keep an eye out for other C-Dorys. It will be great to get to see some Portland area folks.

We should be monitoring VHF 16, but for contact with the commercial traffic on the water, that will probably be on VHF 13, so that may be an alternate to try. The "official" C-BRAT channel is 68, so that might be another option.

Jaynie and I are planning to join you all. We bought our C-Dory last summer and are still green to River boating. Looking forward to meeting everyone. Since the boat will be in the water already, we are going to make our so far longest single day cruise on her from Jantzen Bay. Hoping we will run into some of you putting in a little farther down river.

Rick,

Welcome aboard the Cathlamet Special.

Karen and I are planning a 10 am departure from the Kalama ramp. It’s about 42 river miles from there to Cathlamet. I will send you my cell # via PM. Perhaps we can meet along the way.

Other Dory’s may also be on that section of the river during that time.

We are still planning on putting in at Ridgefield with the intent to swing by Kalama around 10 to meet up with the flotilla. Looking forward to this event.

we'll be steaming out of Ridgefield too....if I get my lower unit back from the shop in time. I just got the old gal tucked into her slip only to discover after a few trips that the oil seal below the water pump has failed......
.I'm thinking that maybe if the lower unit isn't ready, I may just show up in my kayak, I don't want to miss out on Tyboo's coffee

yes I suppose the timing wasn't bad with the crummy weather and all. Hopefully I'll be back on the water this week

As a first-time C-Brat Cruise Director, I am excited about the number of folks who are planning to attend the event.

However, this virus thing has cast a dark shadow over the world, and it will get worse before it gets better.

Like many of you, Karen and I are defined as “endangered species” (people over age 60 who would be severely affected by the virus).

Some would recommend that we not hold this event, and that we all do our “social distancing” part.

Should we postpone the event to a later date?

Should we continue, and take whatever steps are appropriate to protect each other?

What are your thoughts?

I'm planning to attend unless myself or my family is I'll. If you decide to postpone we will do our best to make the new date.

We have a 5 week trip to florida planned this year that I am really hoping I don't have to cancel. I'm hoping my employer doesn't decide to send everybody home like the schools.

Given the severity of the situation, it may be best to postpone.
