- Air draft under the highway bridge is 135 feet at low water
- Cargo docks are about 1.5 miles from the ocean entrance buoy with transit time from pilot boarding to vessel tie up at less than 60 minutes

In 1996, a release from the Pasley of Bunker C fuel, diesel fuel, and other types of petroleum hydrocarbons into Yaquina Bay occurred. This release, along with the decline of the structural integrity of the Pasley, has resulted in exausting the assessment of the environmental condition of the Pasley but also the closing of the dock to cargo movement or vessel tie-up. The current state of the Pasley shows that the hull is twisting and contorting outboard into Yaquina Bay. This produces a high structural strength stress that will result in failure of the old vessel’s hull.
