Fern Ridge, maiden voyage of the Boston Whaler

My bro just showed up in Oregon (*see previous posts) and he’s brought the boat. An old 1960s, 14-foot Boston Whaler skiff. We plan to do quite a bit of tidewater and bay fishing on the Oregon coast with the boat this fall, but brought it out to nearby Fern Ridge Reservoir to work out the kinks:

    Did you boys clean that boat to make sure there weren’t any Quagga mussels hiding out somewhere? It’d be a damn shame to clog up Fern Ridge with that nuisance…

    No Quaggas on this baby. It’s spent the last few years in dry dock and was cleaned and refinished before it came to Oregon.

    How cool to see that boat travel west. I grew up adoring that very same 14′ Whaler up in Maine in the summer, bouncing home on Nantucket sleighrides & watching pop sputter over the idiosyncracies of the Evinrude 25 on the back.

    Great memories. Glad you guys are properly vesselled; be wise out on the wide Pacific.

    Makes me think Crabs.

    We’ll talk FRIEND BUDDY PAL.

    I take it that was the boat that was supposed to be terrorizing Jamaica Bay?
