This Blog has been built to track the construction of my Gaff rigged sloop Pathfinder designed by John Welsford. The vessel is 5.25m in length with a beam of 1.95m. Construction started on December 27, 2010. I have named the boat "Chinook". I hope you enjoy following my progress.

The birth of Chinook
The construction of our John Welsford Pathfinder commenced on December 27, 2010 and in less than two weeks we have completed the construction frame, stem and spine plus four of the seven frames. Photos to come.
All frames but not quite the finished article. Transom still to come.
