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".

Not having given up yet on a tent for Arwen

Whilst looking and admiring Joel's handiwork on his website for the umpteenth time I came across this blog and what lovely thinking about tents.  I could see how it would work on Arwen with no problem.

So more food for thought!

last summer I bought a couple cheap tents from walmart and started cutting them up and stitching them together to make a tent for Ellie. I didn't finish the project but it shows some potential. I chose a-frame tents which wasn't the best choice. I think cutting a dome tent in half and connecting them with a straight section with doors in it would be better. I hope to revisit that project again this summer. -Joel

Yes, there seems to ba as many tent ideas as there are boats... I will not get any further on mine until we have a proper spring (snowing outside now) and I can unwrap my boat.
