* These dimensions can be adapted to suit personal needs or wishes.
** Depending on type of wood, equipment, care with epoxy usage, sanding etc. etc.
*** The speed numbers are based on mathematical standard formulas (175 lb paddler + 30 lb carco weight) and corrected from the kayaks actual performance om trials, on tours and in races.
⁴ Calculated resistance in 4 and 5 knots (at nominal load capacity).
⁵ Initial stability and secondary stability on a subjective scale, where 1 is very tippy and 5 is very stable.

Height1 is the inner height in front of the cockpit (cm), height2 aft. Speed1 is touring pace in knots (what a "normal" paddler could hope to maintain for a couple of hours), speed2 is top speed. Drag1 is calculated resistance in 4 knots, drag2 in 5 knots (at nominal load capacity). Load is load capacity in kg and volyme is litre. Inistab is initial stability and secstab is secondary stability on a subjective scale, where 1 is very tippy and 5 is very stable.
The speed numbers are the mean value from a number of tests with different paddlers - not everyone will reach them, while others may go faster.

* Dimensions for Black Pearl are approximative since it is custom designed for the user.

Load capacity in Panthera is low (120 kg) to not compromise the surfski-like big wave performance. When used as a fast touring kayak 135 kg would be a more relevant figure.
