Solvable Ripping Problem

This is a very general schedule for building the Chamberlain Marblehead Gunning Dory.

JANUARY CUT AND ROUT STRIPS
FEBRUARY Build Steam System and ADD STRIP PLANKS TO FRAMES
MARCH ADD STRIP PLANKS TO FRAMES
APRIL FAIR AND FIBERGLASS OUTER AND INNER HULL
MAY CONSTRUCT INTERIOR SEATING AND MOTOR WELL
JUNE INSTALL MOTOR AND LAUNCH

I think it is doable, but I have been experiencing a little trouble ripping the twenty foot 5/4 red cedar planks into 1/4" inch strips.  The board seems to drift from the table saw fence after about 15 feet or so.  And if I clamp feather boards too tight, the board binds the blade and the saw blows a fuse.

A little perplexing, but nothing a MOAM can't solve.
