Black Pearl - Lars Johansson

Black Pearl på stranden i Höganäs

"Hej Björn!

Black Pearl "THIS WAY UP" har nu sett havets våg.

I fredags paddlade jag mitt vinterarbete för först gången, med viss nervositet eftersom detta även var min första gång i modellen men det gick helt fint.

Bilden som är tagen utanför Höganäs visar hur beslagen som du satte in på byggtipssidan blev i färdigt skick.

Hoppas det blir en fin sommar som jag kan lära mig själv bestämma vilken sida som skall vara upp och när.

The BP is SO stunning in white. Beautiful work, Lars.

Den är verkligen snygg!

Vad är det för luckor du har använt och vart fick du tag på dem?

Hi Dan!

Thank you, it is nice to get that positiv comment from you.

I have read your paint test and think it is very good.

My experience from a Kavat i finished in 2003 and coated with 4 layer of clear Perfection, and still fine, made me choose it for my Black Pearl as well.

Hi Henrik and thank you too!

The deckplates come from Beckson and is the pry out model, you get them from Orust Kajak.

They have nice design and the small 6" is good but the 8" is not fitting so tight and can pop out when you dont want it to, ie packing with some preasure from inside.

After talking to Björn he told me that it is a well known problem and some builders put an extra locking device on top.

If i build another kayak..... i will mount a screw-out model for the big plate.

Thank you Björn!

Thanks for the advice Lars!

I might add that the only trouble I have had with the 8" plate was after four years when the O-ring seal was worn and aged in combination with a repair of the deck hardware that resulted in an aft compartment so hermetically sealed that I might pop the plate just by sitting on the aft deck. The remedy was to replace the O-ring and drill a 1/2 mm hole in the aft bulkhead. After that it remains securely in place.
