  1. We had a 40′ CC Sea Skiff in the early 60’s in Portland. My dad sold it in 1965, and I spotted it in Olympia. That owner had enclosed the fishing cockpit, making it more livable for NW boating. I believe it was called the blue orchid (or similar), as it had a blue hull, mahogany helm and white fly bridge. Wondering if she is still around (and floating). I’d love to see her again. It was the Queen of the Columbia River, as we fished out of Warrenton & probably made 250+ bar crossings in all types of weather. Fast, seaworthy and caught a lot of salmon.

    • I did not find a boat named Blue Orchid in the ACBS database. I have forwarded a copy of your message to the President of the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the ACBS.
