Astoria, Oregon ~ November 23, 2010
The crab catcher f/v (fishing vessel) Tempest on the Columbia River. It has a different look than most of the boats we see on the river. I'd be interested if anyone would like to comment or send e-mail about this type of fishing boat. Anyone who has watched Deadliest Catch will recognize the big lighting rig on the front and the boom for lifting crab pots. I finally rented some of the episodes last month and found out what the TV show was about and where many of the boats go that we see in Astoria's calmer waters. I don't have cable, so if it's not on DVD, I don't see it.
