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".

Great Video Steve. I have my oars on my Scamp attached like yours I notice a line near the rowlocks is this used to secure them from going overboard

Thanks David.
Yup the line secures them during sailing because I keep leaning on them by accident, or worse sitting on the coaming. Cut a long story short, after the third time of losing one overboard as it jumped out of the rollick, I decided to tie them on. Not ideal but it works. At least my MOB drills became perfected!
