    It's on It's way. I never played it, so a critique will be required

    My Tanner tablesaw stopped working yesterday, and had zero heartbeat today. I pulled the switch out and looked at it...seems fine. I think it overheated yesterday as the motor was definitely warm to touch. Finding a manual for this exact model has not been a success so far. Later models have either a cutout switch or a fuse... neither of which are obvious. There is also mention of an overheating protection in the motor, but that is supposed cut out once the motor has cooled.
    Pulling the motor out is going to be a real barrel of laughs.
    Meanwhile, back to hand and power tools.

    My Tanner has a cutout button on the little tin box where the wiring enters the motor. It may be worth feeling around for if there isn't a direct line of sight. Good Luck!
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    Hopefully thats it. Thats the sort of thing to check first if its a complete no life no go. If its a struggle start up, life but not able to get going, change the capacitor.

    They are Sail GP 50 foot foiling cats with speeds up to 50 knots . Normally sailed by a 5 man crew including helmsman, wing controller two grinders and a flight controller.

    It'll be interesting next year when they change to T foils. Titanium billet I hear, so they really will be sailing knives at 60 knots in close company.
    What could go wrong.

    Plenty even with technology taking over sail trim and flight.

    Breakthroughs in Foiling watercraft do represent exiting future opportunities for recreational boaters ,and while a set of foils for Jim may be asking to much ,the younger generation will certainly benefit from todays technological advances.

    On the subject of wooden boats I saw Phil Y today. He's looking well, happy and very very busy. His bakery continues to evolve and prosper as you'd expect from him. He told me how many bread loaves they are baking in a year and I had no idea numbers went up that high.

    He says hi.

    F50s are changing their foils? I can't find anything about that. Is there a link?

    Not that I'm aware of. Balia's deck job is virtually completed as far as I understand it. Not sure about refitting cockpit machinery and hardware, and finishing coamings. To be honest I think Phil's focus is strongly on making the world's best bakery goods in the most amazing bakery.

    I was hopeful in fulfilling some of my sailing adventures abroad Jim in the coming weeks centred primarily around Moreton Bay.

    Unfortunately I broke my right hand at work last week and everything is on hold including the landscaping on my Island property.
    This is particularly annoying with the build now entering the one year mark and SWMBO not happy.

    Additional plans to build a Bali hut as a temporary storage for Jim and possible future accommodation at the back of the block are also up in the air.

    Best wishes for a speedy healing process, Tom. As a musician, I’d be in big trouble if that had happened to me (a broken wrist was bad enough).

    Fingers crossed for you .
