Star's Dry Dock in Portland, Oregon


Recommended Posts

If they don't repair the dent, I wonder if they could highlight the dent NORWEGIAN STYLE by painting it with a big bandage with a textbox 'OUCH' like you would see in an old Batman episode.

Like, Plus 1, Thumbs Up, whatever, I vote for this idea!!! :)

The Star is off the coast of Seaside, Oregon and about to head up the Columbia Rive at Astoria. The map says ETA is 15:00 UTC 3/3/2015 which converts to 7:00 AM PST. But it is not there yet unless an extra day needs to be added to the time conversion.

 

Here is a link to a navigational map: http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/home/centerx:-124.2631/centery:45.7741/zoom:8/mmsi:311082000/shipid:374130

Chris you are best! Thanks for the update.

I just checked Her Bow Web Cam, looks like a very rough Columbia River Bar crossing. That Bar can be down right dangerous. Once they cross the Bar, hopefully the journey upriver will be smoother. It should take 4 to 6 hours to reach Portland. They will have to drop off the Bar Pilot in Astoria and pick up a River Pilot. That might take a bit also.

What webcam are you watching? The only one I can find is from yesterday date stamped at 10am - hasn't updated today. I would love to watch her but cant find an updated one.

Of course I never look at the date and time no wonder it always looks the same to me! LOL

Add one more thing to the dry dock fix-it list.

 

.....

Broken thermostat in the sauna

Dent on the back end

Webcam

 

KP Cheng has mentioned the dent, and it may not get repaired due to the complexities of reaching the area from inside the ship.

The web cam was probably turned off.

As of 3:30 AM PST she is across the bar and heading to Astoria to swap pilots

Bar for River.

 

I would suggest that 1500 is the local eta time based on where she is now.

According to the Port of Astoria web cam, The Star went under the Astoria Bridge at 8:54 A.M. heading upriver. The weather looks really good. She might be able to make some time up depending on how long it will take to board a River Pilot and how much traffic is already in the River.

You appear to be correct about the arrival time in Portland at 3 PM local time.

Trying to figure out a good place to view the Star coming in to Portland. Thinking about Kelley Point Park - any guesstimate as to time to be ready with cameras ??

 

Keep us posted on the best web cam view. I will make sure to be back home to watch the Star.

Kelley Point park looks like the perfect place on a map. :)

Please take pics and post them for us. Thank you!!

She is out by Sauvie Island now. I have looked and there are no web cams anywhere along her route. I suppose that Cathedral Park under the St Johns Bridge would be a good place to view and snap photos as would Kelly Point Park. I have attached some of the screen shots from some of the web cams this morning in Astoria.
