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".

This is an amazing work of art and dedication to the brave crews who voluntarily man our waters and come to us in our times of need and danger. Well done to Jack Lowe for such an imaginative tribute and archive.

Spotted it on Gavin Atkin's 'intheboatshed' website which is in itself an amazing archive of our seafaring history and close affection with boats and the sea.

Both sites well worth a visit and bookmark.
