Najad – Martin Swahn

Najad – Martin Swahn

Fick för en dryg vecka sedan ett par bilder från Martin på Hälsö. En ny elegant Najad – svartlackat däck och med en intressant sarg, laminerad i ekfanér.

"Hej Björn;

Köpte ritningar av dig i november och ringde dig angående sarg i mellandagarna. Nu är kajaken klar och det tog väl i runda slängar 200 h.

Datalagringsdirektivet

News

Återigen off topic! (Du som bara ville läsa om kajaker på min sajt – välj någon av de andra notiserna ;-)

I morgon fattas beslut om att implementera datalagringsdirektivet. Varför detta sker blir allt svårare att förstå. Vi har matats med argument för lagens förträfflighet eller om vi inte går på det, dess oundviklighet.

Report from the fair, day 3...

Report from the kayak builder Petrus:

"Another intense and fun day on the fair, many interested visitors talking kayak and building. Some building activity in between – the deck is done, with laminated plywood scarph at the cockpit, cloth around the forward hatch, and deck hardware. Here are some pics."

Kayak building in real time...

Petrus bygger Black pearl

Interested in seing a kayak building project in real time, and happens to be in the vicinity of Stockholm this week? On the Wilderness Fair, Petrus Johansson (with Petruskajak) is building an S&G Black Pearl in the four days – thursday to sunday – when the fair is open.

Will he finish a kayak in just four days? Maybe not, depending on the amount of discussions, spontaneous lecturing and answering questions – but if I know Petrus, he will be pretty close when the fair closes on sunday...

Spring sun...

fika i vårsol

Finally the sun has risen above those old spruce trees and the now assymterical ash tree along the southern border of the garden – and finally time again to enjoy the after-lunch-coffee in a sunny corner...

The new kayak plans finished...

A couple of weeks ago I forewarned that a new kayak was coming. Now I have drawn, calculated, adjusted, redrawn, recalculated, readjusted in numerous iterations – and finally have declared the plans done...

So this is the Frej: a tough kayak for surfing, play and touring in tough conditions (not that it wouldn´t do well on a calm sunny summers day, but the focus has been on safety and comfort in bad weather). The name Frej comes from the nordic mythology: Frej was the son of Njord, who was the god of the sea. And since Frej is a developed from the Njord hull...

Now who builds the first Frej?

Update March 17:

After a discussion on likeness or not in the comments below, I drew the profiles and station shape in front of the cockpit for those kayaks mentioned for a visual comparison (the comment are in Swedish and disciussed the visual resemblance between some wellknown Swedish kayaks): Ulf Johansson's Corsa GT, Johan Linder's Clapotis, my Njord and Frej and one of John Winter's old kayaks (the North Sea) – one of the "forefathers" of this kind of hull. Though there is some resemblance in the profile, the stations show different kayaks altogether: in bottom shape, chines, deck, sheer, height, lateral balance...

Datalagring i praktiken

Är det någon som till äventyrs fortfarande tycker att datalagring och övervakning är en bra idé, kanske Malte Spitz exempel kan väcka lite funderingar. Herr Spitz är miljöpartist i Tyskland och fick uppslaget att titta efter vad som fanns lagrat om hans göranden och låtanden. Så han satte samman den information som finns sparad om mobilsamtal, SMS mm, kombinerade med öppna källor (Twitter, Facebook, bloggar) och fick, trots att han är tämligen insatt i ämnet, en obehaglig överraskning.

Datalagring i praktiken

Starta presentationen med startknappen mnere till vänster på kartan, ställ in önskad hastighet och följ vad Malte Spitz har befunnit sig timme för timme, adress för adress de senaste sex månaderna!

Till detta kommer sedan alla de uppgifter som är hemligstämplade, även för en politiker, som har som arbete att fatta beslut om dessa frågor.

Det här är Tyskland. Minst fem svenska riksdagspartier gillar detta – som en bra början...
