Jaktkanot

This boat type is the youngest in Blekinge. Along the Blekinge coast, huge amounts of sea birds fly during spring and autumn, especially in the eastern part of the province, they have been hunted a lot. It requires a small, safe boat that does not get spotted easily at sea and the hunting canoe is one such.

They origin from Greenland's kayaks, but by detours a sailing kayak came in the naval officer Carl Smith's possession in the year 1870. He developed it in Karlskrona archipelago and built several of a ribbon frame covered with sailcloth. The archipelago population discovered them and built their own for the hunting.

Mårtensson's boat building at Hästholmen developed it and built the canoe in wood from the beginning of the 20th century. There were probably 800 - 900 ones built at the boat building. The archipelago population also built many by themselves. But the boat type belongs only in the eastern part of the province.
