LA ARMADA de FREYA…

This will be my fleet for the North Island! Not 100% labeled yet with all the (sponsor) stickers, but it’s coming…!

I have just spent 3 1/2 days of hard work in the Lettmann factory. Thanks very much to the Lettmann GmbH with Jochen Lettmann, Martina, Klaus and Anne and to all their employees to host me in their factory and home and to help me upgrading, outfitting, fixing and fiddling with my five “FREYA” kayaks. It is like a bride’s outfit…it must have something old, something new, something bright, something blue…

I got in each kayak a solid Lettmann footrest installed, an electrical pump, some upgrading of the steering system and hundreds of pieces of ropes, bungees, nets, screws and bits and pieces.

I will paddle a Lettmann Speed wing paddle, size S and XS, 205 cm. Thanks to the Lettmann GmbH to provide me the necessary paddles for my North American trip! They will also help shipping my kayaks over to North America. Thanks a lot for all!

The story of my “Freya” kayak model: Originally designed by Magnus de Brito, manufactured and sponsored by Point 65 of Sweden for the last 2/3 of my South American circumnavigation, I am still attached to and convinced about the great design especially made for (my) expedition needs – and the special rudder system. I want to keep on paddling this kayak also for the next decades, but unfortunately Point 65 decided already for 2016 to cancel all composite kayak production and to continue only with plastic kayaks.

Point 65 agreed in many e-mails to transfer the existing mold to Lettmann, and to allow them to manufacture my “Freya” kayak in future. Unfortunately, the mold transfer from China did not happen yet, though promised. Thank goodness I still had some in stock myself. Perhaps, one day we may get my “FREYA” kayak produced by Lettmann GmbH – but sorry, currently it is nowhere available any more… 🙁

Four kayaks are coming out of my private stock, one kayak is sponsored by Kajakprofi.de Shops in Berlin und bei Hamburg. Thanks to Steffen Kampehl and Paddy Di to provide me the kayak! PLUS they agreed also to support me financially for the years to come! Many thanks! Btw., they have just one red fibreglass “FREYA” kayak left…maybe the last new one on the world market?

In this great design of things you’ll secure an A+ for effort. Exactly where you actually lost me ended up being in all the specifics. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be more correct here. Having said that, let me inform you just what did do the job. Your authoring is definitely quite persuasive which is possibly why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can easily see a jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am definitely not confident of just how you appear to unite the details which help to make your final result. For now I will yield to your point but hope in the future you actually connect your facts better.
