Nice! What kind of kayak is that? I've never seen one with a much larger bow than stern. What are the benefits of a design like that?
It's a Point 65 XP18, 1 fast tourer kayak from Swedish kayak maker Point 65. I was unable to find much info on it on their home page (nothing at all on their Swedish page, and just pictures and a video clip on their English page, so it might be discontinued), but IIRC the big bow was about having leg room for working hard, and it was also to stop it from heading into wind when paddling in windy conditions.Nice!

Really nice, only it does not show the flies.I like backpacking, away from crowds and "popular spots" so often that leads to off trail bush bashing. Going light is essential for me and Micro 4/3 allows me to take a camera and a couple of small lenses (primes) or compact zooms

Yes it seems to be true. when we moved in to our current house there were many spiders moths and snails etc. I have seen no snails in many years, no more moths around lights and hardy any cicadas. When I was young cicadas covered the trunks of trees now I hear them but hardly see them.The "insectageddon" people seem to report on almost everywhere? Insect numbers seem to have plummeted in recent years in many places...
