Moorage in Oregon?

My wife and I live in Idaho and are possibly going to be purchasing a Cal 2-46 in San Diego. We then need to move it to less expensive mooring, as we aren''t in the position to become liveaboards yet. I have run across a few places in Oregon that are fairly inexpensive (Salmon Harbor, Charleston). Is there anybody out there that has any input about decently priced moorage in Oregon or Northern California?

I appreciate any input I can get. Also, any opinions on the bluewater capabilities of the Cal 2-46? I have heard alot of good. The only bad is her age, 1975, but that drives the price down for me.

Thanks again,
Brad

Brad,

I hope the pre-purchase period goes smoothly on the Cal 2-46. It will certainly accelerate the cruising schedule!!

Coastal Oregon is a handful. With the weather and the river bars and the rugged coast, it certainly breeds astute mariners.

I have limited experience with the Port of Newport - South Bay; an excellent facility which is under-utilized with a corresponding rate structure. And, an on-site brewery!! Between the facilities on the other side of the bridge, on the river and the Port of Toledo there is a pretty good availability of marine services. Rates appear to be about $1200 per year.

I imagine commutation times will be a factor. From your location, I can make Newport in about the same time as Bellingham. So, you have that stretch of coast to consider.

As far as the Cal, check out Sailnet''s Cal list. There are a couple of listees who have cruised extensively in their 2-46''s. It is a VERY active list, you must set up your E-Mail correctly to prevent being overrun!

Good Luck with your search,

John,

Yeah, the Cal thing kind of popped up on us quickly, as well as life taking a few corners sooner than expected, some could be good, some definitely are less than good. The whole thing about one door closing, one window opening....

Thanks for the input on Oregon. I am concerned about the kind of sailing conditions that we are bringing upon ourselves up there, but I guess that will just be part of the learning curve.

How do I find that Cal list? It is something that I haven''t bumped into yet.

Thanks for the input, I really appreciate it.

Brad

I don''t know where you intend to cruise, but you should strongly consider northern Puget Sound, i.e. Anacortes or Bellingham in that these anchorages are on protected water and access the inland passage easily.

Brad,

Cal List - On the Sailnet home page, go to Discussion Lists and you will see comprehensive listing.

You have two options, all subscribed list messages forwarded to your E-Mail or a digest version containing all the list messages in one E-mail. The Cal list is almost as large as the Catalina list (pretty good for boats out of production since the mid 80''s!!).

There is also an ftp site that contains a lot of useful information.

On another matter, what about mooring the Cal on the upper Columbia. This is a quantum leap in complexity from your current boat. The closer the better to become aquainted with all these new systems!! Just of thought. (I am really out of my element on knowledge about the upper pools.)
