I would not advocate sailing an unfamiliar boat that may have issues down the Oregon coast in winter.

That's the main reason I'm recommending getting it up to snuff and waiting for a couple months while he learns his vessel. The columbia bar can be a monster this time of year its likely a minor issue with the Volvo that is in his boat that's not allowing it to start easily. They are usually quite reliable
