Ya Just Gotta Luv it!
Currently located in Florence Oregon. This is a nice small port and the bar is not as bad as the press it gets. I am kinda new to this site. What boats have I owned? 9' duck boat when a sophomore in High School, 24' pontoon boat when I lived on Swan lake in Northern Minnesota. 19' runabout when living on Bray lake in Minnesota. 21' runabout when I lived in Wisconsin. 23', 28', 35' and 48' when living in Oregon. A total of 56 years of boating. Currently a live aboard in the Port of Siuslaw, soon to move to South Beach Marina in Newport Oregon. Hope I can contribute something to this thread.

HI Gregory, welcome aboard TF. Nice part of the US you live in. We're headed through there by car next month on a sight seeing vacation.

It worked - much the way your fishing technique apparently works. You and your family should try to take some time and enjoy the outdoors more!

Welcome Fish Tales. It looks like you will getting hit pretty good over the next few days.

Blissboat 10-13-2016 06:10 PM

A fine looking Tolly, and it boats fish, too!

Fish Tales I would call that a yacht. Very nice vessel. Quite the fish also.:thumb:

gotta love those long fins, Be careful though it's suppose to blow this weekend... Welcome

Fish Tales 10-13-2016 06:32 PM

Thanks for all the kind words. The wind is supposed to be 35 to 45 Kn with gusts up to 55. This harbor is inland about 3.5 miles as the crow flies. I have about 1/2 mile fetch to the SW so the wind does get a run at us. They think the power may go down but the genset is ready to go. The admiral likes a good storm, says it clears the air! I'll just tie my chin strap and get another cup of coffee.

Wifey B: The girls aren't topless on that South Beach. :oops: And seeing Tollycraft make me sad they died. :cry:

When we were through there in 2014 we stopped at Newport and at the Port of Suislaw. My memory isn't working on Newport. Was South Beach Marina named that back then? I thought it was just Newport Marina. We didn't dock there. We hit a lucky time as far as the bars. :)

Got back from the San Juan Islands Sept. 22. We made a stop in Ilwaco for two days. Where are you located.

Fish Tales 10-13-2016 07:07 PM


The marina on the south side as you come in under the bridge. I think it is called South Beach Marina or maybe I just created a new marina. My assigned slip is AS11. Close to the Rogue Brewery.
