Arwen (#525) and Samwise (#548) Launched!

Post by Jennifer J Harold »

As a high school teacher working remote this year, I decided it was time to take on building Arwen. Fortunately, my friend and colleague, Todd Pollard, decided the same and began work on Samwise. We managed to have these sister ships splash-worthy for a joint christening. There is still more to be done on each, but at least now we are sailing!

Week 1 was spent getting used to the new boats on Mason Lake, WA. Each of us had our kid on board as a super soaker cannoneer as we practiced maneuvers.

I was delighted to see the pics of your completed boat(s) on the water! Your earlier construction thread and photos (and, of course, others on this site) have been very helpful for us as we progress on #560.

Thanks, Ihav,
I reached a point in my build where I quit sharing on the forum.. had a boat to build! I'm open to questions about what I've learned during the process though.
