The Irish Rose of Port Orford

FV Irish Rose, built Columbia River 1946, been in Port Orford foPort Orford, on the southern Oregon coast, is always an interesting visit with their dryland harbour safely above the the southerly winds that can lash the unprotected port. These winds can be so strong that even the boats on land will be lashed down. “Capricorn” Mike Ashdown has fished many years out of the port and his boat, the Irish Rose, even longer.
