At last - pics: Black Pearl!

Launching day

Hello Björn!

Finally a couple of pics of my Pearl that was finished in May... a new job and a move to Kristianstad made me forget.

Kavat with an alternative deck

Hello Björn!

Send a couple of pics of my Kavat. The kayak was finished in 2003 and built for my son from the plans in your book. At the time I had not found your web site, and invented a deck shape of my own, as you can see.

Kajaklopp och säkerhet i Danmark

SMHI och DMI var överens: 12-14 m/s väst och på Malmö Kanotklubbs turlista stod Näset. Ett sammanträffande för bra att missa. Så vid niotiden rullade vi in på parkeringen söder om Skanörs hamn, 13 förväntansfulla paddlare, lastade av kajakerna (enbart havskajaker) och tumlade ut i vågorna.

Greenland pics

Link to the slide show

A Greenland expedition by Sylvain och Jean-Luc Grossmann resulted in some very nice pics of nature and paddling. The presentation style, a quicktime movie, is not optimal though, forcing the viewer into passive mode, without options to control any aspect of the experience.
