Black Pearl - Henrik Kronborg

Henrik in the new Black Pearl

Hi Björn

Finally my Black Pearl is finished. It has been an exciting process, but also one that took some time. I started on January 8, and was done August 23.

On my website (that expires on October 10) I have describes thye building process. The URL is: http://henrik.kronborg.nielsen.person.emu.dkk

New  Black Pearl

It was amazing to launch the Pearl first time, and take the seat. It is a very lively boat, and I have a little practicing to do, before feeling quite in control. It rolls very easily and I have ordered a tuiliq to further expand the repertoire of rolls. Nice with a kayak where you can lay comfortably on the aft deck.

I cound not attend the qajaq meetings at Limfjorden or Fyn this year, but hope to meet you at some other time and place.

It may be that I build another Black Pearl later. I have learnt a lot with the first one, and it is tempting to repeat the process, with a few changes in the building methodsthe new confidence and competence. I submit a couple of photos, takes by Erik Franzen and Lone Himmelstrup.

Rolling practice

Thanks for a remarkable design, nice paperwork and a very good website.

Hej Björn

Det skal retfærdigvis påpeges at Henrik hedder Kronborg, men det ændrer ikke på den kendsgerning, at endnu en smuk Black Pearl er født.

Tillykke Henrik



Ber om ursäkt Henrik - korrigerat nu.

Tack för påpekandet, Erik.
