The Columbia River Ship Report
Quick Guide to Shipwatching

shipwatching guideThis compact, fold-out field guide printed on heavy, glossy stock explains the different types of vessels you are likely to see plying the waters around the region – what they are, what they’re carrying, and who’s on board.

With one of these, you can practically do your own Ship Report!

Buying a Shipwatching Guide is truly a “shop local” experience – a one of a kind, made-in-Oregon publication. Joanne, a professional journalist and photographer, took the photos and wrote the copy. She hired a local Long Beach, Wash., designer (Spence Photo Design) who worked her magic with the layout, and a local Astoria, Ore., printer (Anchor Graphics) who did a fabulous job of bringing it all to life.

And the only place in the world you can get one is right here, or at a handful of brick & mortar shops in the Lower Columbia region. For a list of area merchants who carry the Guide, scroll down.
