Will we EVER get out of here?

It seems the common theme through the country this spring is Water.  Water everywhere!  The Columbia River shares that.  We have had high water for several weeks now.  Not to the level of devastation say around the Mississippi, but still we are currently at or a little above 'Flood Stage'.

So, what does this have to do with getting out of dodge?  It is the Dry Dock.  With the water this high, and the associated strong current, we can not get on or off the lift deck.  And as such, even if we have the lift reserved, it is a No Go.   AND as you can see in the attached photo - the outlook is not changing much.

Till the river drops 8 or so feet we will not be able to haul Viking Star.  Between the River and other boats, am thinking it might be July till we can get the boat up. . . .
