Does anyone know anything about the boats we saw this morning. We were at Mosier around 7:30 AM and saw a tug boat along with 4 other cabin cruisers heading upriver. 2 in front were about 35 feet in length followed by a 50-60 foot yacht then another 35 foot cabin cruiser. Did we see King Abdullah or Bill Gates?

We used to windsurf N-S directions at Rod&Gun going about 24mph while Arneson and friends (total of 3 offshore racing Rolls powered) zoomed directly ACROSS our paths at over 70 mph. Those offshore boats topped out around 125mph in those days.
No rym or reason to their overall path plan, so we had to keep kinda "eyes peeled"........

I call it the "John Scarry Armada"... they showed up when John Kerry came to HR. Need to watch out for dem dudes... can't seem to keep a steady distance.... I tried passing between 'em and suddenly the front boat slows down to a crawl while the back boat speeds up.... I get squeezed in the middle, got me really, really angry.

Prolly why I didn't vote fer John Scarry.

Bill's boat is all white and with a helicopter and a stern slot of his submarine. It was anchored in front of the resort I was staying at in PV this spring.
