Tired from paddling

motorized kayak

Every now and then someone makes a wish, often in a strong head wind, for a kayak motor – well, here are someones who acted upon that wish. Reasonably ervironmental friendly at that!. But how then to pass the time when "paddling" – read a book, or surfing the internet?

Disigt i sundet

Stilla ute i sundet
Utsikt från Barnviken – Görans röda Epic Endurance 18 som staffage

Liksom förra veckan dök Göran upp vid MKK:s brygga och vi valde att paddla ut genom hamnen för att slippa de två alltmer irriterande lyften. På det sättet blev det en kort kanalpaddling genom ett Malmö i senhöstfärger på köpet, och en lite längre paddling totalt.

Just another day on the job

Launching at Lomma beach
Launching at Lomma beach

So it was paddling today again - filed under "customer service". Kristofer was interested in the Njord and wanted to try first. Accepting the conditions: just above freezing and force 4 NE, and in a borrowed tuiliq (my old, not quite leakfree anymore) he launched at Lomma beach for a short tryout. I am often more than willing to swop some time at the computer for a little paddling, so away we went for an hour or so at sea. Though almost a novice he found himself quickly at ease with the limited initial stability of the Njord, handled the greenland paddle very well and even pulled off a roll on the first attempt! And did he buy the plans - you bet...

Autumn Sunday

The canal out through the western harbour of MalmöThe canal out through the western harbour of Malmö

Autumn weather at its best – clear crisp air, a couple of degrees above freezing, light winds and sun from a blue sky. Göran and I took advantage of the weather for the usual Sunday trip south to the Öresund Bridge and back, with a long coffee brake in the sun at Lernacken, the lime ridge south of the bridge. Going back the wind increased to a force 5 westerly, quickly producing a steep unpredictable sea - a not uncommon condition in the narrow sound between Sweden and Denmark and with current and wind in different directions. 18 kilometer, plus some rolling outside the harbour entrance.

Chris´black Black Pearl after refinishing

Chris Russo´s Black Pearl, delivered from Dan Caouette at Clear Stream Fine Woodworking with a light grey waterbased marine finish, had to return to the shop for refinishing, after problems with peeling paint (some of my paddling collegues will remember me contaminating a pool with paint flakes from my prototype BP).

Visit from Tranås

Lomma harbour – Petrus in a Njord

Petrus and Iréne from Petrus Kajak in Tranås visited on a purchasing trip - a couple of news kayak plans, some epoxy, glass and carbon fiber cloth etc for the winter: kayaks for their own use, a couple of ordered kayaks and canoes and for the builders renting place (and help) in the kayakshop. Of course we found time for a short trip in the sound as well.
