Killertrayer, Are there two launches on Multnohmah Channel known as "Browns Landing"? After reading your post, I looked on my Evergreen Willamette/Columbia crusing atlas. The chart on page 20 shows "Browns Landing" about 3-4 miles north of Fred's Marina. This would be quite a ways from **** Island. Then I noticed another place called "Brown Ldg", also on page 20. This one is near the top of the page, near "Johnson Crossing". Is this the one you were talking about? How does that ramp compare to launching from Scappose Bay Marina?
