Njord – Marc Valgaeren

Njord – Marc Walgaeren

A very nice interpretation of Njord, very close to initial intentions and hopes!

Hello Björn,

I just wanted to let you know that I recently finished the Njord. It took me about 310 hours of work, due to the problems I had with glassing the hull as you may recall ( i had to redo it because of air bubbles). The rest of the building process went reasonably well.

I did make a few changes, I reduced the height of the foredeck in front of the cockpit to 21cm, and I glued in a foam masik, so I now have 19cm from my kneecaps to the bottom. I like a tight fit.

I also made the coaming larger behind my back, so my tuilik and sprayskirts would fit. I kept the seat position according to the plan.

Småkajaker för barn

Frej XS – Jan Thomas Schwenke

Det byggs en hel del småjkajaker för barn, men jag har inte fått så många bilder på sådana. Det vill Jan Thomas Schwenke råda bot på.

"Hei, kan ikke se av hjemmesidene dine at du har fått tilbakemeldinger på barnekajakkene dine. Nå har jeg bygd tre stykker av dem en, Isfjord Micro og to Frej XS til mine tre barnebarn. Bygde isfjord i 2017 og eldste på 6 år begynte å leke seg i den. I 20/22 ble de de to Frej bygd i lengder på 434 og 456. I år var de alle tre med samtidig på tur. Isfjord påstod ene barnebarnet var "uveltelig" da han prøvde å velte i den. Frej oppleves også stabil at de to eldste greide å reise seg og padle litt stående. Lite vindfang. Selv padler jeg mest med ror men barna lærer teknikken med kanting relativt raskt. Frej har jo så mye spring at den svinger raskt også bare med årebruk. Det viktigste er jo at barna stortrives i båtene. I alle fall de to eldste er ikke til å få på land. Det oppleves sikkert også som et pluss at båtene får stor oppmerksomhet fra andre padlere. Det er kaldt i vannet hvor vi padler rundt Tromsø på ca 70 grader nord. Ca 12 grader i juli uansett vær pga relativt sterkt tidevann så tørrdrakt eller våtdrakt er nødvendig. Det gjør at det ikke er så mange barn som padler til tross for et relativt stort padlemiljø (ca 1000 medlemmer i Tromsø Havpadleklubb).

Black Pearl – Niklas Nordquist

Black pearl – Niklas Nordquist

Hej!

Efter att ha ägnat 25 år åt att slutföra byggandet av en Guillemot Expedition (+ ett hus och att uppfostra tre barn) blev Black Pearlbygget en kort men mycket trevlig historia! Materialet blev Redwood Cedar och sen en mahognybets på utsidan. Vikten landade på 12.5kg vilket är mycket behagligt att lasta på takräcket. Nu återstår att lära mig "leka" med kajaken.

Stort tack för en fin kajak!

Mvh,
Niklas
