I'm a Little Nervous

I had a girlfriend whose parents had a house on the beach just north of Depoe Bay. Oregon.
So, of course this is one of my desired stops along the coast this June.

I came across these three videos (watch the video first before you read the comments). Videos one and two are of the same boat and incident, from different perspectives):

Greetings,
Mr. W. It appears to me to be more about power than finesse but what do I know...

Remember these videos when you read here that all the guy needs is a 7 knot vessel. Here is where I want the power and speed of an express cruiser.

The last time I got sea sick in life, decades ago was in Depoe Bay on a whale watching cruise doing about one knot up and down on swells. By the time I got back in, I was moments away from losing my lunch, fortunately that did not happen.

The coast guard vessel certainly showed how it should be done.

Do what surfers do. Sit and watch for a while to get some understanding of what the waves are doing before attempting to take them on.

Some reference material - you probably already have it. The last link is a specific Bar Crossing Handout for Depoe Bay.

The good news is you won’t waste a lot of time getting into and out of Depoe Bay. The bad news is the entry is very narrow, has a slight dog leg and is exposed to surge. That fishing boat had plenty of local knowledge and still got caught. Newport is definitely the better choice.

I’d stay out further and count/distinguish at least three sets in a row before going in after the last big one. Probably wouldn’t sleep very well the night before!

When we came down the coast we skipped Depot Bay for that very reason and went into Newport instead. Newport was an easy entry and exit.

When your boat maxes at 9 knots, timing is all you got. If you can't time it, don't do it. Is it ever calm there?

PS: I wonder if having a spotter on shore would help. You'd have to trust them.

Edit: Found this too, might be same as above, but I can't open above: https://www.oregon.gov/osmb/forms-li...epoeBayBar.pdf

I would either get a Coast Guard boat or more likely--rent a car.

I’d go there as well. If the only reason a skipper pulls into Depoe Bay is to put some sort of testosterone driven notch on a belt, I wouldn’t want to be aboard that boat.

Both of those boats look like they can throttle up to above 8 kts. I wouldn't run it.

Nobody cares that they cut 10 miles off of their run when the're hull is sitting on a shoal.

That’s better than 4 cups of coffee in the morning. If that doesn’t get the blood flowing nothing will.
