Dr. Orme’s Cabin

Restoration of the USS Highpoint PCH 1 — 120 ft/120 tons designed by Boeing, built by Martinac in Tacoma, WA. It was flown by the Navy for 30 years and decommissioned in 1990. After changing hands several times, Dr. Orme and his son acquired the boat at a lein sale and they are restoring it to original condition. It is moored at Tongue Point, Astoria, OR. It will be powered by two Rolls Royce “proteus” jet turbines with speeds approaching 80 mph over the top of the water. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKoo1aus4Ew

Dr. Orme enjoys writing librettos for grand opera, screen plays and books, as well as poetry. Here are some samples of his work. http://pjhereford.blogspot.com/
