Arwen's meanderings

Hi everyone and welcome to my dinghy cruising blog about my John Welsford designed 'navigator' named Arwen. Built over three years, Arwen was launched in August 2007. She is a standing lug yawl 14' 6" in length. This blog records our dinghy cruising voyages together around the coastal waters of SW England.
Arwen has an associated YouTube channel so visit to find our most recent cruises and click subscribe.
On this blog you will find posts about dinghy cruising locations, accounts of our voyages, maintenance tips and 'How to's' ranging from rigging standing lug sails and building galley boxes to using 'anchor buddies' and creating 'pilotage notes'. I hope you find something that inspires you to get out on the water in your boat. Drop us a comment and happy sailing.
Steve and Arwen

Servicing my Tohatsu four stroke 3.5hp outboard engine

OK, be kind. Here is part one.

Remember "We don't know what we don't know".

I don't know ANYTHING about outboard engines. My learning curve is STEEP!

Well done - off to check the oil level on mine now!

Thanks Steve - now building up the courage to take off the gear section and to do the impeller.
