Hunter – Örjan Antonsson

Here is a report on my fall project "Hunter". Built a Najad some years ago, a very nice kayak that I have spent a lot of miles in, but now it was time for a more exciting kayak. The choice stood between Black Pearl and Hunter, and Hunter weon due to more volume – well, sort of ;-)
Building went well and of course, having built ine kayak and tested a lot was did help a lot. Launched february 7 at the PK Definens float on an day temporarily without solid ice. A gentle test drive close to the beach, unused to a kayak that tippy, an of respect for the ice cold water. But with a little pratcice and in warmer water it will probably be a perfect companion for day tours in the archipelago. It tipped the scale at 18 kg with the rubber hatches.
