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".

A message from Michael

I received this comment from Michael last night

"Hi Steve
My name is Michael and I am clearing out some of my late fathers items. He had almost completed his Navigator project before he died.  As I do not have the time or inclination to complete the project I have been disposing of items. 
I have a complete set of brand new and unused Hyde sails for a Navigator Gaff Yawl that my father commissioned before the boat was completed. 
If you know of anyone interested in them please pass on my contact details. I would rather these be used on a Navigator if possible. The sails are a red colour and I have receipts that show the cost of the three sails/ribs/bags was £1000.
Kind regards 
Michael"

If you are interested in these sails because you are building a navigator here in the UK, drop me a comment in the box below and I will pass on Michael's details to you. It would be lovely for Michael to see the sails go to a good home and new navigator boat.

Don't suppose he mentioned what happened to the boat?

Good question. Will try to find out

I have no doubt that an almost completed Navigator would find a home. There's even a change that I might be interested in taking it off his hands.
