    anyone ever heard of the Arvid Laurin 28?

    I am trying to find anything about this design. Haven't had much luck. It is from Sweden. canoe stern. Originally built in wood. Later in FRP. I saw one and was impressed.

    Thanks, I went back and edited the original post to "Laurin". It was a misspelling. There isn,t much info on the laurin available. I don't know how to get swedish translated. There is a little in swedish on line.

    I don't think Google or Babelfish do Swedish to English.

    Laurin 28

    The Laurin 28 is a modern "koster" and related to the trad Scandinawian seagoing long keel doubel ender. Like the famous Colin Archers

    The L28 has been used for trips all over the globe.

    They are not fast but they take you there
