Sorry I missed you, was only up there for 5 weeks this summer. I definitely would have noticed your rib on the river if I saw it; the next time I'm up there I'll swing by and say Hi if I see you on the water.
While your rib might be considered to be only used in anger on the rough ocean I could not think of a more perfect rib for the Columbia River Gorge (your backyard). It's hard to explain to people how rough it gets on the Gorge or express how big the waves get. With winds gusting regularly 30+kts during the summer and current going the opposite direction the waves are awesome and it's a big deep river. The videos below will help explain it. I love it and that's why we go there, albeit we never really go past Collins Point from Cascade Locks. I love the Gorge, one of my favorite places.
On a quiet day but still very beautiful:
