The Astoria Motor Boat Club is listed in Lloyd's Register of American Yachts, 1917, as organised in 1909 and incorporated in 1915. As its station is given: Foot of 23d Street, Astoria, Oregon - Columbia River. The club was a member of the Pacific Coast International Motor Boat, and from 1912 to 1915 it reach the news mostly in connection with organising speed boat races. After that, I've seen no further mention, except Lloyd's, and by 1929 its burgee is no longer shown.
The burgee is a ca. 2:3 triangle, decided per saltire very dark blue before white before red, with centred on the blue a white capital A.
