Now in its second year, the revitalized Portland Poker Run saw a record turnout of over 30 boats. Hosted at the beautiful Salpare Bay Marina developed by CRC Powerboat Racer/Owner Mike Defrees, the participants were treated to a truly incredible experience.

Powerboat Nation Member and Skater owner, Brandon Larson, told us everyone had an awesome, fun time and how cool it was to have more and more of these events on the west coast. Summer weather in the North West is fantastic, and there are numerous great waterways to blast all over making it a totally unique experience no matter what event you attend!

The fleet of boats included Skater, DCB, and many other big brands not commonly seen on the Columbia and Willamette Rivers.
