Between gales...

Black Pearl on Lomma beach

Today there was a short break between the winter gales. Maybe I am influenced by paddling absintence but I cannot remember a winter this windy.

An exciting wood project

Hightech sportscar in wood

Joe Harmon Design in Usa are building a fast sports car in wood laminate. 600 Hp V8 in 1100 kg maple and plywood means top class performance. A number of new ideas: suspension, fire wall and parts of the wheels in wood laminate. A seating position moving the engine closer to the center of gravity, a muffler that doubles as a wing etc...

Spring in the air

Sunny Salviken

Not one single day of winter (in the meteorological sense: a full day and night with average temp below 0° C) and now: spring with blazing sun and no wind. I launched at Salviken today for a little rolling practice and a short trip down the coast and back.
