This blog is devoted to my John Welsford designed 15' Navigator yawl Ellie. I built her in my garage over a period of 18 months and launched her in 2011. She sports a sliding gunter main, roller furled jib and sprit-boomed mizzen. Her construction is glued-lapstrake over permanent bulkheads and stringers. This blog is a record of her construction and her voyages here in the Puget Sound area and (hopefully) a useful resource for fellow Navigator builders.

Pull and be Damned Messabout

Come to the second annual Pull and be Damned messabout in Anacortes on May 16th.  We enjoyed this messabout a lot last year and am looking forward to attending again this year.  There will be a potluck, boat sharing, and an optional overnight campout at nearby Saddlebag Island.  For more details see the forum at Woodenboat.
