We took delivery
of Odyssey (mast 62') from Hayden Island and moored at Tomahawk Island for a month or two. The Interstate 205 bridge will be as far up the Columbia
you will have access. Going down the Columbia
, there is an operable rail bridge that took 30 minutes to traverse. Hayden and Tomahawk Is. have marinas
, shoreside communities and floating home developments. The downside is PDX is a neighbor. The I-5 bridge is operable and is very close for 64', depends on pool and tide levels in the closed position.
The Willamette River would get you closer to Lake Oswego and make the surface commute reasonable. Not knowledgeable of bridge clearances on this channel.
Enjoyed our stay at Tomahawk and the liveaboard
community there. We had different objectives.
Sounds like an interesting concep, good luck.
