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".

Wooden dinghy blocks

A tad rough around the edges, the pins need knocking out and the block sanding a little more on each edge where ropes enter and exit......but here they are. The first batch. The next batch will be varnished and I'll decide which ones I like most afterwards.

Whilst the blocks are slowly getting there, the garden is a mixed fortune.

 Broccoli going well; cauli's.....dead.....mass caterpillar attack.  Leeks, carrots and onions all fine. Runner beans stunted but mange tout......excessively successful!
