For one thing, that there is an active group in Astoria! I plan on coming that way to explore a little within the next few weeks. Eventually will move my boat down there.
I am on Hayden Island in Portland, working on a refit
of a CT-41. Just thought it would be nice to know more sailors with similar interest, experience, etc. Been here since January and so far have found very few in the area to pick brains and swap lies with. Local knowledge, events
, people willing to help each other out, sharing experience & techniques on certain boats... that kind of stuff. "Professional" assistance around here is at lawyers wages and often questionable competence. Fortunately, I have very little need for $100 per hour guys, but once in a while good to discuss something with someone locally who has been down the same creek. Sometimes just have too much beer
and need help circulating it.
Do you think there are enough people around who would participate in a North Oregon
River sailors group on this forum?
