Black Pearl in Dalarna
Another happy owner of a Black Pearl. I am curious to see in what ways it will influence my paddling.
Finished just in time for midsummer. Christening and première in my home waters, lake barken in the south of Dalarna - the starting point of Strömsholms canal. The first tour was slightly nervous without proper foot and knee support (I have understood that my two days beard doesn´t help much either). But a little work with glue and foam and a new trip that really whetted my appetite.
Some data: Loa=557cm, Beam=49cm, Weight=16kg including seat and lines. The seat is glued to stay in place. The wooden hatches are held down by a lever, described earlier on the site. Cockpit rim in glass and carbon fibre.
