Sorry for my English knowledge. What is it - "Texel number"?

It's a joke, they want to know how fast the inflatable is! smile

On last racing GPS showed about 13 knots for Ducky-17.
In Canada, my D-19 with 3 peoples + equipment - got 10 knots

In Ukraine and Russia is used rating based on old SCHRS formula. For standart Ducky-19 with 13 sq.m. it is around 0,8 for 3 people crew with spi, for sport version Ducky-19S 16 sq.m. - around 0,87 for the same condition.

pgp is right, it was a joke, but those speeds are not bad at all! Awesome trip. Best looking inflatable I've ever seen.

No, it'd direct delivering from Ukraine factory or trough storage in Germany. When it delivered trough Germany - some extra options are available.

You can play with this link, it shows about prices - http://www.inflatable-catamarans.co...=products&sub_topic=price_calculator

There are couple new options started in production, but does not reflected in calculator yet.

I would advise against taking your cat down the copper river as indicated in your map. The rocks you would have to slide across would rip the bottom out of both hulls before you made it from Glennallen to Copper Center. It has canyons with shear walls that only a powerful jet drive river boat can handle. Whole trees tumble while being swept along by the massive current. If you fall over board, your dead. The current takes you away so fast that no one can catch you, the cold water does its thing to put you to permanant sleep and then the silt fills your clothes and every orafice to sink you to the bottom. Then there is Childs glacier that calves constantly into the river just after the bridge. The river is not wide enough to skirt around the falling ice either. I was raised in Alaska and I have been in many of the places that you show on your map. If you make it to the ocean the life jackets are only good for body recovery. You need to have a serious servival suit so your still alive time changes from 30 minutes to an hour or two. A more reasonable trip would be to go from Anchorage and drive your boat to Whittier to put in. Then sail to Valdez and then to Cordova. This is all protected waters of Prince William Sound. Watch out for the oil tankers though. They can't stop or turn if you get in their way. From Cordova you can peek out from behind the islands to see if going out into the Gulf of Alaska is merely dangerous or suisidal. Good luck, I hope I don't read about you in the papers as another tourist who stepped off the plane and into the food chain.

No, because the picture is taken from too far away. I don't know where that picture was taken but common sense tells me that the guys on the jet ski's are too close to that glacier.

One other piece of advice we tell all the tourists coming to Alaska is to put little tiny bells on their clothing when in bear country. You can tell if you are in bear country by looking for the bear scat. You can tell that it is bear scat because it is filled with little tiny bells. laugh
