man, i hate it when people do drive-by postings like this. did he do it? if he did do it, did he make it?? now we will never know.

i think a line should be added to the user agreement that if you talk about some dangerous sailing adventure, you're required to come back and post how it went (or why you didn't go). i'm almost serious about this.

i've lived in oregon all my life, and there is no way in hell i would cross the columbia bar with an inexperienced crew. not, really, without at least two other people on board who'd crossed before and knew what they were doing. no way.
