Black Pearlis one of the most popular positively reviewed kayak plans amongst homebuilders. We have suspended the marketing common sense in favor of breathtaking performance. A kayak for those resourceful paddlers who know exactly how to deal with difficult situations, do it right and with split second timing a kayak for pure unaffected paddling joy and with no practical usefulness whatsoever. Black Pearl is a kayak without significant characteristics: it is not stable nor unstable, not fast nor slow, not strong tracking nor tightly turning. Those qualities are within the paddler. The kayak is highly responsive and does whatever is required and does it instantly. Go where you want to go, do what you want to do your kayak will be there for you. Black Pearl is a tight kayak of east Greenland ancestry, with a low deck and a seating position that takes a bit getting used to. But once there it gives a superb kayak control and comfort and of course rolling and maneuvering qualities second to by product.
