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

Cleaning the carburettor in a Tohatsu four stroke 3.5 hp outboard engine

The last in the trilogy on servicing my own outboard engine. 
If you want to see sheer elation in a man who realises he has just saved his own skin by not being murdered by 'her indoors' when he asks for a new outboard - watch to the end! 

'Her indoors', by the way, makes 'Villanelle' in 'Killing Eve' look like a wussy!
