HEAVY LOAD: The Columbia River Bar Pilots' 44-year-old boat Peacock, which was built in Germany and worked the mouth of the river from 1967 to 1999, is now on permanent display outside the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria, Ore. Lifting the 80-ton 90-foot steel vessel required two cranes with a combined lifting capacity of more than 800 tons. The Peacock's final berth is 100 feet from the river's edge, beside Highway 30, the busiest route into Astoria.
