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".

For P in Cornwall........

Until you are well enough to raise sails on your own boat P, this one is for you and I hope it keeps you going and your spirits high. Fair winds and may the fish continually bite for you P.

Thanks Joel. It was rushed a little so I could get it done before I returned to school today and a manic lifestyle again.

Steve - It looks like you need more tack down-haul tension on the mainsail. That may get rid of that nasty diagonal crease on the sail that runs from the bottom of the gaff to the clew. It shouldn't be that way. Maybe Joel can re-comment on this...
