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".

Elegance boats

john has just posted on his blog. Some videos of his designs in action. And what struck me was how elegant, graceful and sleek they all look. Their designs are classic, well thought out designs. And what amazing skills some boat builders have. You can see the post at

The last vid is suspect though. Dodgy amateur with a boat that has that 'my skipper is an idiot but I guess I have to look after him because he's my idiot!' Kind of look about her. Poor Arwen, the things she puts up with.
