I'm coming, work gave me the time off. I have a first mate so if there's wind we can put Bells sails up. This will be my first messabout and my first real cruise with Belle.

Re: Table Saw Blues --- Burnt out motor !!

 

Cal's saw has the blade bolted right to the motor shaft, and a brushed AC/DC motor. Like a great big portable circular saw bolted to the underside of the table. Not a separate motor with a belt to the arbor like the pricier saws. He was talking about it the other day. My going-on-50-year-old Sears saw has that integral motor and arbor and is still humming along (though brushed motors make more noise). It's kinda scary that I remember when my saw was bought new, by a friend. <g>

You can often find good deals on old table saws. If it's a good make and model, a little fettling and maybe a new fence and you can have got a good saw.

Are you happy with your saw in general? or would you consider replacing it? I think my neighbor is looking at getting rid of a small table saw at some point, I could ask him the price.
I'm in south eugene. Where are you?
Also, harbor freight has motors in box for ~160. I'm not sure what you're prefered budget is. Is this a "I want to fix it for under $20" type of thing?
I'm interested to hear what others say, I've burnt out a couple motors and it's always been a pain to find a good cheap replacement.

Re: September Columbia Cruise

I”’m remembering Fred’s is the first marina into the Multnomah Channel followed by Lucky Landing, etc.  When we returned from Hawaii we kept the boat at Fred’s for awhile, then moved down a marina.  I moored two different boats at Lucky Landing, a 32’ cutter and prior to that a 25’ Freedom for a total of several years.  The ramp at Fred’s is fairly steep so not much to worry about for launching…as long as your brakes are good.  heh.

Here's their webpage. 

Driving, you head west out of Portland on highway 30 towards Astoria. After passing through Linnton, the speed limit increases to 55 mph, and just a quarter mile after that sign, you hang a right on NW Marina Way.  The marina is about a half mile down the road, well marked on the right. During fishing season, it is a VERY busy place, with rigs parked out in his overflow lots and along Marina Way. I'm not a fisherman so I don't know if that will be a problem for the cruise dates.

It's an original Ronald Young. One former iteration ( https://www.pinterest.com/pin/275282595947150079/?nic_v2=1a1tzClZN ) was shown at a past WBF.

Re: September Columbia Cruise

 

The date of departure from Fred's Marina is September 26th. The itinerary isn't nailed down, but we may spend a day sightseeing up the Willamette through Portland and back, staying a night at or near Fred's, then go downriver on the Columbia side of Sauvie's Island for two days, maybe stopping in Fishermen's Slough behind Caterpillar Island, then back upstream using Multnomah Channel, spending a night at Coon Island.

The object of the cruise is to take it easy, enjoy the scenery, and not try to cover a lot of miles. We'll try to finish each day's run before the winds kick up in the afternoon. But by late September we may not have the summer weather pattern that kicks up the wind...
