I'm thrilled to see that there are two more John Welsford designed Pathfinders on the water.  Congratulations to both builders and to John too!  Take a look at these boats and you'll see why everybody involved should be very proud.
Great work on the transom and rudder Nishan.

And there is Amazon under sail.  Nishan built the yawl version (my favorite) with a sprit rig just as John had designed it.  Very nice.
And Alan C, also in the UK I believe, launched Idle Fiddler.  (Alan, I borrowed a couple of photos from your blog, hope that was ok.)  From reading Alan's blog it looks like this project was a family build.  I can't get over the attention to detail on these boats.  Beautiful work on the tiller and rudder here.  And aren't those belaying pins for the mizzen?
I really admire and envy the work these guys did.  Just fantastic boats.  I know they will have a great time out on the water.  I understand there are several more Pathfinders under construction around the world, I can't wait to see them too.

John, I think you have really hit a home run with this design.
