Boating Distances on the Pacific coast

Distances and options

One of the questions my crew will be sure to ask is where is our first second or third stop on the way down the coast once we finally leave the waters of the Columbia river.

To this I will reply,  didn’t you read it in my blog?

Notes to self:  High slack is best for crossing the Columbia river,  low slack is second best.
