where does Fred keep his marina? 

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.

Oooooooo...geee...It's prolly too hard...but...hmnnnnn...where does Fred
keep his marina? Jamie and I have been solo cruising, and on two
occasions, doing the social distancing/group cruising thing this summer.
Sometimes, if you squint, it almost seems like "normal." Dan

It's an original Ronald Young. One former iteration ( https://www.pinterest.com/pin/275282595947150079/?nic_v2=1a1tzClZN ) was shown at a past WBF. I don't know if that was custom from the builder or a modification. I plan to stop by the Poulsbo Boat Rendezvous (in Poulsbo) on the 29th to see if the historical society has any info. It's powered by a Yamaha 8 hp high thrust electric start in a well. I'm having a hoop tent constructed for the forward cockpit on the 31st. I hope to have her fully cruise capable by the first week of September. Christened Scot-Free (a nod to part of my heritage). She'll fly the Scottish red ensign.

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...

Banta boat

Jhcalbany@aol.com
 

Got the Banta boat done. I built it with the intention of donating it to my church. I talked to them & they aren't doing any fund raising this year because of the virus, so they don't want it. I haven't gotten the paperwork & hull number back yet, so I can't sell it till I do. If any one wants a cute boat contact me & we'll talk

Table Saw Blues --- Burnt out motor !!

Electri-Cal
 

Just had my Delta 10 inch saw burn out, this is not good.  Looking to replace that is pretty spendy.  So, looking for a good motor rebuilder, a replacement, or exchange motor, maybe even a different gently used saw to replace my old one.  Ideas welcome, I found a motor rebuilder down the road, but different tried and successful ideas might come from the Coots, so here goes !!  Yep, it'll cost a few bucks, but would like to do it some good way to get rolling again.  

Thanks,   Cal

Okay, then, here is a quick stab at POIs that might be of interest.  

A friend in his Port Townsend skiff and I in my Tolman are heading out tomorrow for a Hayden Island round trip.  Next week, I hope  to head up to Scappoose Bay to see what condition the backwater is in that Terry, Pat, and I stayed in after the summer solstice back in June, 2009. River level is pretty low now, so it may not be a viable stop.

I'm willing to stop, by boat or car, at any other places anyone wants to know about.

In return, maybe someone can take a quick peek at my moorage area (just a quarter mile down channel from Fred's) and explain how to properly dock in and out of an angled berth with wind, tide,  shallow water, and current screwing with me. And a neighboring boat, to boot.  I'm getting tired of seeing all the floating home inhabitants bringing their chairs out to watch major entertainment.  😀
