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".

the box.................................

well here it is

the box....a family heirloom.......


it will need rubber neoprene gaskets and new hinges

side on; one corner is splitting and needs some work

a bit of a split in the top too but this is some fifty years old......

perhaps a wee bit more work that I'm initially anticipating?
 
hinges will need sorting as well and may be rabbeting the tops to fit better?

pretty cavernous.........

and a pretty, very old metal petrol jerry can which holds a fair old amount
