    Default John Welsford's AWOL design

    I was looking at boat designs i would consider making in the years to come. What a dreamy boat for trailer and gunk holing. Shamelessly stolen from John's Facebook.

    A large nose is the mark of a witty, courteous, affable, generous and liberal man. My feature suggests an excellent side kick of good index.

    Being in the midst of a Navigator build myself, this makes complete sense as a successive build.
    There's the plan, then there's what actually happens.

    In case you want to just buy one, I believe David Perillo is selling his. Was this the first one built? Gotta get it shipped from NZ, though.

    it is nice. it would be the price, the travel to see it in person plus 5k for loading and the shipping container. that would add up quickly.

    She was sold last night, a father and son who were students at my Essential Skills for the Beginner Boatbuilder class last year have bought her, they plan to build a Pilgrim but could not resist having a boat that is pretty much ready to go.
    It will be good to see her out on the water again.
