In reality I will likely just use the boat to go offshore for the day or bottom fishing for rockfish halibut. My concern is that the Oregon coast has some real nasty bars and its possible to go out for the day but not be able to safely return for a day or more because of the weather. People are killed every year on oregons bars.
