“Middle Cove Newfoundland"
Awesome looking boat Stan. Long Pond on Saturday was like paddling in a wind tunnel but getting the boats wet couldn't wait.The pictures turned out alright. I was afraid the wind had blown you too close a couple of timesTony :-)
A black boat looks so cool, but I guess not the safest colour in the world if you ever want to be spotted by a chopper for example! Was there any reason you chose it other than its sheer, slightly eery beauty?
I chose black because of it's appearance as you describe but also because some of the research I did on it's ancestors from Greenland appeared black in some older photos. I thought that it imparted some of the old heritage and mystique that surrounds the origin of the kayak. Now having a black drysuit and pfd doesn't help for visibility either......but my whistle is orange!
