Lovely picture and built only a couple of hundred miles away fromhome. Mind you, when you live in central England you are always within 200 miles of the rest of it!
Got the plans for John Welsfords "Tread Lightly" today. Unfortunately things have moved on a stage and it is unlikely to be built now, but in his book "Backyard Boatbuilder" there is 25' ocean going cruiser design named Arwen. Do you know it? I don't remember seeing it at WoodenBoast etc.
Well, my grp 17 footer is coming along. New standing rigging, a furling jib on order, a new galley fitted and plans for a wet locker and a tools and spares box next. Boy am I enjoying myself!
Nope, not familiar with “Arwen”. As you said, she does not show up on John Welsford’s site either.
Say Nobby, your work on the old girl grp 17 seems to be going right along. Hope you are taking pictures. Say, if you compile a number, add some text to make sense of it all, and mail them to SBF we will put your story up on the SBF Adventure page—others may enjoy a look see…!
Yeah, this boating thang is fun!
