Default the rest of the story...

The Columbia River Bar in Oregon

Where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean.... HANG ON !
This video is of commercial fishing boats returning from fishing off the coast of Washington and Oregon. They are crossing the Columbia Bar, which is the site the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean.
This is designated as one of the most dangerous ports of entry anywhere in the world.
There are at least eight to 10 deaths per year with people trying to get in or out in boats that are not made for this kind of severe beating - the kind you will see these boats going through.
These boats are self-righting, have a super low center of gravity, sealed engine compartments, basically bullet proof glass windows, double steel hulls. They are commercial shrimp and fishing boats.
The Coast Guard has closed it to any other boats due to waves of 35 to 45 feet. It is quite a sight to see. Watch the You-tube video and determine if you would like to have been a crew member on either of these two vessels.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Makes me sea sick just watching. Thanks for posting, Stick, I went across the Bar at Tillamook Ore. and West Port WA , but not in waves like the that.

You gotta hand it to those guys.

StringerT Mike would probably like to do that.

The local TV news often talks about "rough bar conditions" - I used to think that meant I should drink at home.

I've been over the Columbia Bar several times. Last time was a fishing trip on a 50 ft boat. Everyone aboard was forewarned by the Captain but a couple in the party didn't quite get it - smiling and laughing about it until we took about an 8 ft drop off the face of a wave. The bow was literally airborn for what seemed like an eternity. One woman went from a rosy, laughing face to an ashen gray death visage instantly. She spent the rest of the trip at the railing chummin up the fish. It did seem to help though - most of us limited out pretty quick.
