Thank you so much for your offer, it appears to be perhaps one of the more sane optiins to get this done. I'm more than a little concerned, however, at what the cost would be involved for such an endeavor as I'm on n extremely limited budget. I'm a bit stuck right now because of this weather, my first order of business is to decide on where her new home will be and then I can formulate a plan to get all this accomplished once the weather has cleared enough. Thanks again so much for your response and offer to help, I've been so impressed but not surprised at the concern and interest in have received from this community.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll definitely look into them, I love that area and it's definitely the zone I'm aiming to be in

Run a non-profit here in PDX called go-sail.org that can introduce you to lots of other folks that are learning like you are.
Thank you so much for your reply and offer to help, towing seems to be the safest way to go, I'm only concerned about what the cost involved would be as I'm on extremely limited budget and none of this was anticipated at all. It's just a short distance I'll be going and thought it would be a simple matter of motoring the small distance and be done with it. I know that was naive of me and that this is just the fist of many many unanticipated things that pop uo, but I'm sure that I will find a way to get it done, especially with all you great people out there willing to lend a hand. So for now I'm just waiting out this lovely weather we're having and using the time to hopefully find her new home.

Re: Sail 22' up Columbia in Portland, OR

My delivery rate is typically $400/day or $200 for a half day. I will cut you a deal and just charge you my gas on the avon (probably about $15), as long as you sign up on go-sail.org distribution list ...... its a win-win for you. In 2016 a hand full of my go-sail folks got over 3k miles of sailing in the ocean including Hawaii deliveries. You to can access to some of this by getting on the go-sail.org distribution list.

Thank you so much for the offer, I may very well take you up on it. I'm not at all familiar with what's involved with joining this group so I guess my next step is to research them. I would look forward to joining anything appropriate for me and willing to help whoever I can. Like I've said, I have absolutely zero experience but am willing to learn, after all that's why I'm doing this in the first place. I'll be in touch as soon as I've firmed up where I will be docking her.

Yeah, best not to be too rigid with your schedule, especially with this weather. I'm surprised your able to get out at all, you must be fairly young. I'm a bit of a wimp about it, but I'm sure that's gonna have to change if I hope to have any part of this work out. Lmk when you plan on taking off.

OP wants to move 3- 5 miles at the most.
Does the boat have sails and an anchor?
If you can borrow an outboard that would be great. Do it on a weekend and I will help.
Having someone with a dingy along would be great idea.
I have an anchor and rode you can use if needed.
I'm sure I can find someone with a dingy to help out. Buy us lunch.

Re: Sail 22' up Columbia in Portland, OR

It's not clear from your posts, but if you are of the fairer sex then you might consider joining OWSA (Oregon Womens Sailing Association). They are very active in women teaching women sailing. They will be at the Portland Boat Show this week. You might want to go to get a feel for things here in any case.

Yes, I am female and will definitely check them out. Not sure if I can make it to the boat show but will if possible. Thanks

Yes, has sails on that I believe are in good condition as well as brand new back ups. I'm assuming it's got an anchor, but I know assumptions are a bad idea. I know I'm gonna need some batteries, I don't know if that's necessary prior to being towed, I was hoping to deal with that after I get her docked so I can do the research and get the best and proper ones for my needs which I don't really know are at this point.

Re: Sail 22' up Columbia in Portland, OR

Also, at this point no dingy btw. It's on the short list of first things to look into depending on my docking situation. I've got so much to learn and have spent so little time on her that I feel like before making decisions on larger investments in her i really need to spend some time acquaint ingredients myself with her and finding out as best I can what the priorities are. I'm kinda blind right now in that regard. But everybody's been great helping and advising me and it's much appreciated. I'm feeling so much less panicked than I did a couple of days ago
