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".

Practical boat owner article

there is a good article on building a navigator her in the UK in the August edition of Practical Boat Owner magazine.  Mike Price has a come a long way in building his navigator and he has gone for very nice teak strip seating. I look forward to seeing it launched. Arwen's Meanderings gets a wee mention in a box of useful websites at the end of the article along with Joel's, Barrett's, Robert's and John's websites. Duckworks over in the US also gets a mention.

Tomorrow is the first chance I have to get out on the water. The weather is about to break and so I may delay it until Saturday. A minke whale was spotted off Plymouth Sound during the hot weather earlier this week......when I was assembling dad's shed for him......so I am hoping it is still there!!!
