Arwen's meanderings

Hi everyone and welcome to my new blog. My name is Steve and i am the lucky owner of a John Welsford designed 'navigator' named Arwen. I built her over three years with the help of my father, father-in-law and two children. She was launched in August 2007 at Queen Anne's battery marina in the barbican area of Plymouth. This blog is a record of our voyages together around SW England.
Arwen has a YouTube channel of her own. Search "plymouthwelshboy".

quick don't miss it....a welsford video

I discovered this fascinating Youtube clip - a talk by John and some other colleagues about what to look for in a small boat. It was quite illuminating. I discovered by chance through the openboat forum and then later discovered that our good friend Joel (Yo Joel - how ya doin - and well done sir!) had recorded it with John's permission.  It's about 55 minutes long but well worth sticking with. So throw out the kids for an hour; pack the Missus off shopping; take the phone off the hook; find a comfy chair and a beer or cuppa...and sit back for some intellectual discussion about what makes a good safe small boat!

Well done Joel!

Steve

Sorry Steve, I was asked by Howard Rice to remove this video because they are going to produce a book and film for sale.
