Hi! I think I am just down the road from you, assuming GFU is George Fox University? We live in Lafayette, and spend a lot of time in Newberg. We have a 32 foot Islander, and would enjoy taking you out and showing you the ropes, but unfortunately our boat is in the Puget Sound at the moment, up by Port Townsend, WA. which is not the most convenient. Are you all from the area (be around in the summer) or will you be going home for the summer? We may be bringing the boat back to the Columbia this summer, we haven't decided for sure yet. Either way, perhaps we can work something out. I like your go for it attitude, coupled with a bit of caution and a few years foresight.
