This one is for smaller people. My size 14 feet don't even get close to fitting. Sleek, nimble, and light-footed~ this silky smooth hull packs surprising speed for its short length. This is partly because of the smaller beam, which also helps keep the weight low. Ideal for lighter to mid-weight paddlers it is best, in my opinion, for people under 140 pounds, the Bliss can take you to that special "Other Place"~ where the cares and hustle and bustle of the 'real' world just melt away in priceless moments.
The lofty support of the adjustable seat back assures you a life of leisure while you enjoy your Blissful ride. And the seat back folds down easily and securely so you can load large dry bags in the amply-sized stern. There is plenty of room in the rear fishnet pocket to store the water bottle and more.
Adjustable foot braces make it "just your size" and the tie down loops at each end are secure and simple to deal with. A convenient paddle holding ledge on the side of the boat keeps the paddle handy but out of the way when you are busy with other things. At 37 lbs it is a breeze to load, transport, and unload.
This Bliss is about being perfectly adapted to your favorite part of the world. It's about a quiet escape. It's about you. Go ahead~ Bliss out. It's good for you!
Kayaks are available in several kinds of materials and with different construction methods:
Composite kayaks are made from fiberglass, kevlar and graphite in different combinations. Fiberglass, is very durable and makes a strong and economical kayak.Kevlar is lighter and very tough so less needs to be used to make a strong and very durable kayak. Graphite is even lighter than kevlar and is used in strategic locations on some models.
Plastic, Super Compound Linear Polyethylene, (SCL) is extremely tough and durable. It is used in the rotomolded models. Cuts or breaks are so rare I have never seen one, even on white water boats. UV inhibitors are blended in to protect from the sun. This is the most economical durable material Current Designs kayaks are built with. The down side is a little bit of flex and a bit more extra weight.
Thermoformed Composite System (TCS). These are made from an Acrylic and ABS plastic laminate. This plastic is stiffer and lighter than SCL polyethylene. It has the look and light weight of a fiberglass kayak, but costs less. For a more in depth description of these materials the Current Designs web site, or a catalog will help.
