New exciting kayak project

Ny Frej på väg till produktion...

Since summer 2014 a new commercial kayak project has been underways.Together with Petruskajak and Kano og Kajakværkstedet in Denmark I have been busy with a Frej for production – I design and calculate, Petrus builds the plug and Kim takes care of production and marketing.

A couple of days ago we could admire the finished plug, delivered by Petrus to Kano og Kajakværkstedet i Kongens Lyngby. Molds for deck and hull will be cast on the plug, and in these molds the kayaks will be laminated. Kim and I could appreciate the first class job Petrus had done. We studied and felt the finish, put temporary hatches and a compass in the prepared indentations to get an idea of what the finished kayak will look like in a couple of months.

First Nanoq in the US...

Nanoq – Bob Ten Eyck

"Dan & Bjorn, I finally launched my new Alleq/Nanoq. I just love it. Nimble, quick and responsive. Did not roll it yet (water temp 34). It also seems to like the surf/waves but have not tested it in serious waves. Will send better photos. It came out 4" longer than designed. I somehow miscalculated the stems – did not allow for the thickness of the strips where they meet at the bow and stern."

Bob's Nanoq is strictly speaking not a Nanoq. It is built from the Alleq plans, the plywood version I designed for Petruskajak's building classes based on the Qanik I designed for Seabird Designs some years ago. Bob converted the Alleq drawings back to strip several months before I got the Nanoq plans ready to ship. Performance-wise the difference is probably not noticeable, but Bob kept a little more of the harder edges of the plywood version, positioning his version slightly closer to the skin-and-frame Illorsuit original, while the Nanoq has the Qanik-like softer chines and slightly more rounded panels.

More on the different versions on the Nanoq-page.

News in the catalog

As some have discivered I have added a couple of new models to the catalog – kayaks I have developed over a long time. An unexpected gap in the calendar offered the time needed to finish them.
