Re: Strip: Bjorn Thomasson HUNTER project start

There is some interesting research on the effect of color on speed and stability: http://www.maineislandkayak.com/impact_of_color.html

That's a funny article. Thanks for the link.

A pro builder of glass boats did tell me that some gelcoat colors covered better than others, so there actually is a small weight difference between commercial kayaks with different color gelcoat...(assuming that the builder doesn't just lay on excess gelcoat when not absolutely necessary....)

A 'well-known fact' that's not talked about here: Brightly painted boats are definitely faster than the 'woody look', and artistic inlays slow down the boat even more. ;-)
