Depoe Bay Wooden Boat Show

This last weekend Jody and I along with two other members of our “Traditional Small Craft Asso. Lower Columbia River Chapter” The Lower Columbia River Raptors, loaded up some gear and hooked up boat trailers to make way south to the smallest natural harbor in the world, “Depoe Bay”. Our sister TSCA group “The Oregon Coots” (out of Eugene, OR) were the sponsors of the show. Although small with approximately 15-20 boats both in the water and on the hard, it was well attended. Saturday it was raining so hard most of the exhibitors were popsicles by the end of the day but that didn’t stop people from coming to view the wooden boats and participate in fun activities. Most of us showing were so busy I don’t believe one photo was taking that Saturday.

The most popular activity was the kids boat building tent. Wooden parts were precut, tools were provided so kids from all over could “with the help of moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas create there very own small wood boat! The kids had a blast.

All in all this weekend was one big good time! What’s a little northwest wind and rain to a bunch of Oregonians and Washingtonians!!

Below are just a few pic taken before the show of the boat and this beautiful small boat basin, “Depoe Bay”.
