with a lot:
An AP article published April 25, 2008 claims that the coasts of Oregon, Washington and California have claimed more lives even than Alaska waters, including the Bering Sea, where Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch is filmed. (Click to read the article)
“The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health released a report Thursday detailing the hazards of fishing off the coasts of California, Oregon and Washington. The report said those three states combined for a fatality rate more than twice as high as the national commercial fishing average between the years of 2000 and 2006.”
One of the somber features of Dead Reckoning of the Pacific Graveyard includes a list of lost fishing vessels from the region. It is the most complete list of lost fishing vessels to date. The list was obtained from multiple local, long-time fishermen, their families, local publications and Coast Guard reports.
A detail photo of the lost fishing vessels list, printed on handmade paper using an antique letter press by Oblation Papers in Portland, Oregon.
The result is a respectful, enduring memorial to the lives lost in the commercial fishing industry of the Oregon and Washington coasts.
The list is featured on the premium framed chart by NW Limited…History in VogueTM as shown below:

in Manzanita tomorrow, April 29, 2008 at Nehalem Bay State Park.
The small cannons are normally kept submerged in water and secured until restoration, but the Oregon Parks Dept. is draining the water and inviting visitors to come and view them from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 pm.
Here are a few photos from NW Limited’s trip to see them at the last public viewing in March:
The surface feels much like concrete encasing the carronade due to pressure and reaction of the elements surrounding the carronades for 162 years.
They were buried in approximately 20′ of sand prior to the Winter of 2007-2008 storms’ erosion.
You can see the mounting apparatus on the bottom of the cannon in this picture on the right.
The pieces in the bottom of the tub are a chain and possibly other bits of the USS Shark Navy schooner, which was wrecked on the Columbia River Bar.
The carronades even have their own blog: Cannon Blog
The USS Shark is one of the hundreds of Oregon and Washington, Columbia River shipwrecks featured on our Dead Reckoning of the Pacific Graveyard shipwreck chart.
