    MarAzul, hanging out at Hadley's landing near the south end of Sauvie Is. Hoping for the fog to go. Not sure we
    are heading up the river today or not!

    That is such an incredibly beautiful boat, and I bet it hauls ass in high winds based on the shape.

    Turned out to be a pretty nice day once the blanket lifted. I think I will risk it and stay the night here. Move a few
    hundred yard up stream tomorrow, to the Tom McCall park dock.

    You know, I have not got a good handle on what she will do yet. I have been single handling for the most part. I have had her up to about 17 knot on a reach single handed. It takes a crew to do all the work required to go fast!

    I haven't seen @barfo around today. I'd be worried about pirates getting your booty.

    Hey, get your ass up to the Moda for tonight's game. I'm going with Mrs PokerDog. Buy yourself a ticket from one of the scalpers. I'll buy you a beer.

    Not too comfortable leaving the boat here unattended. Better hang about and see if @barfo needs anything.

    Wow, I have not been up this river in about 46 years. My things change. Nice dock here. I worked right here just about 60 years ago. I am pretty sure we loaded out barges with Concrete moored at the old pier right up stream from the dock in the picture. It was my first job after leaving the Navy. Uh! Ugly job!
    There are so many private docks on the river now, amazing. In the days I ran up this river, I probably went by here doing 40 knots. Now If I had a boat that could do it, I suppose it would attract the entire Willamette Navy and the Sheriff for sure.

    Lovely cruise grounds, too bad it doesn't extend all the way to Jefferson. It could.

    This morning an old fellow riding his bike on the walk way by the Duck Doc, Stopped turned about and came down on the dock. When he got there, he did not ask the normal questions. He went straight to he point, How long did it take you to build this? I told him, I was a young man when I began. He laughed, and said, I believe you! It is pure art! You do not do this quickly.
    I thanked him. I thank you.
