Two rescued off beached boat in mid-river near Waldport

Central Coast Fire Rescue got a call yesterday on a report that there was a boat stuck in the middle of the Alsea River, about two miles east of Waldport. It appears that the two aboard were caught in a rapid outgoing tide and soon hit bottom before they could navigate back to their moorage.

They called Central Coast Fire Rescue which soon had both off the craft and safely back on the “other” dry land. As you can see their bow anchor didn’t hold and their boat was pulled a bit downstream, but by now a high tide interlude would have given the fishermen time to retrieve their boat.

Central Coast Fire Rescue personnel urge boaters to coordinate their aquatic outings in cooperation with the tides. Not only as to the time of their high’s and low’s, but also the feet-elevation change. BOTH are important to make note of.

NLC.com reader George Bowles suggests that anyone who doesn’t already have a source for tidal highs and lows, they should try out this website: SaltWaterTides.com
