Fishing boats at dry dock – work wanted

The F/V Ballad at dry dock in Astoria in 2006

This crab boat also fishes in Alaska longlining for Halibut and Black Cod her hull is aluminum and she features twin propellers

Unwieldy-looking out of water, this old tuna boat waits for paint

Boats of all kinds:
In dry dock, stored for the Winter, for repair and restoration, or for good:

Here, out of the water, surrounded by pavement, they appear as monuments to their trade, sentinels of countless storms of the Pacific Graveyard, and showing the effects of work and weather.

Some of these may have been salvaged, the remnants of a disaster awaiting disposal.

The ones that didn’t make it won’t be found here…

Dead Reckoning at the USCG Regional Exam Center in Portland

Hanging with the Coast Guard

Hanging with the Coast Guard

Thanks, Tony, for these photos of your new Dead Reckoning the Pacific Graveyard shipwreck chart hanging in your office at the United States Coast Guard Regional Exam Center in Portland, Oregon.
Tony has to say:
“Hello Bill,
Well I got my Dead Reckoning piece hung up in my office here with the Coast Guard Regional Exam Center in Portland; it looks really awesome and I am very pleased with it. Thanks! You did a great job on it.

I have attached two photos of the piece on my wall; they aren’t the best photos as my office is some what small and hard to get a good shot, but at least you can get an idea of what it looks like; everyone here really likes it as well.

It was good meeting you and I hope to get down to Astoria one of these days again and will try to look you up if I can; you are also welcome to come here to my office in Portland if you would like any time.

Thanks again,
Tony Sellers”
