Let's be sure to pick one of the two or three days of the year when that 12 mile run is calm, no wind, and long low swells with a stable long term forecast.  Then I'll be there.   :cha:

Otherwise, I'll keep the bar stool warm awaiting your return. :biggrin:  

That bar crossing in my 17SC is not real high on my bucket list.  When it comes to the Columbia bar, my sense of adventure just ain't what it used to be.   :hoboy:

Been across the bar several dozen times when I was much younger in a 100 foot steel tugboat. Was not fun then; can't imagine in a 16 to 19 foot fiberglass. Course the skipper went over the bar when we got there, not necessarilly looking at the conditions or things like that. There wasn't any of this official bar closure stuff. :bowdown:

Hi I just joined this forum. I need all the info I can get  for my 89 19SR restoration project in progress.So far I have replaced the top with a custom made one that is longer to cover the passenger  seats , replaced port side pedestals with a sleeper seat, redid the bottom paint.replaced the single axle trailer with a tandem , in the process of replacing the wood with hdpe (sandtone color)and have trim tabs to install. I fish from buoy 10 to Oregon City for the last 30 years and at times have caught my fair share of fish. With all of the projects on the boar I never keep it torn down long enough to miss a fish bite.  :fishing:

Welcome to all who have joined since my previous greeting.  So much relevant info on relevant topics...I guess that is the point of it all right.  Took a break for a few days and tonight it took 3 hrs catching up on all the great post.  Do not stay away for long...you will surely miss something invaluable or hilarious.  Just another one of the outstanding benefits of owning an Arima!!

Hi there.  My name is Brett and I joined this site because my father just bought a 92(I think) Sea Chaser.  the boat came from the Portland area and according to him is absolutely immaculate.  He said of the 4 or 5 he looked at htis boat looked 10 times as nice as any other Arima he looked at.  The boat has a 70 horse Evinrude, tohatsu kicker, full canvas, Eagle depth finder, Shorelander trailer and bottom paint.  Apparently the boat was only used a few weeks a year for a particular salmon run up the Columbia.  The rest of the time it stayed in a garage.  He bought the boat because of the fishing ability and weight.  He wanted a good fishing boat but that was light enough to tow behind his 42' Ocean Alexander up to Canada.  I am really looking forward to using the boat and for the advice on this site. 
Thanks
Brett

Well, I actually found out it is a 96.  Here is a picture although it is poor quality.

Welcome Brett!   :party:


Is that a 16' Sea Chaser?

Being a 1996, it has all of the best upgrades that have occured since the introduction. Those should include:

- Split bow rail which is great for anchoring in a current.
- deeper chines to keep your drier.
- 27 gal gas tank, I think.
- Starboard (plastic) panels not wood, right?
- 3 bar soft top.

It looks very fishy to me.  :fishing:

Greetings,

I was a member of the original Arima boat owners group and have been a "lurker" since the Microsoft change. I'm looking forward to get acquainted with some of the left coast members. I live downstream from the gang from PDX and would like to get some fishing education in that area. My range has been somewhere between CR Buoy and Kalama. I'm on my 3rd Arima. I have "rescued" a couple that I have resold, now I have a 19' Ranger that really needs to be fished as opposed to worked on. Until I get a chance to get some pictures going, we're customer photo #16 0n the Arima site.

Welcome:

Check out the Arima Group Activities forum.

We have a trip to Sequim planned for halibut in May, Salmon out of Sekiu in July, Springers just about to start in Columbia, and of course B-10 fishing from August until October or so.  We will be getting together probably every month or so with fishing getting underway.  I am sure you can like up with any number of us for an outing.
