Specifications for Double Vision
|IN STOCK COLOR
It is the pride of our Vision fleet, the Current Designs Double Vision is a great tandem kayak in Polyethylene or composite hybrid. The Poly one listed here for $1799 has a dent in the hull under the seat; I seriously doubt that it makes any noticeable difference in paddling. The composite sale price is $2599. I only have one of each at these prices. It is a little faster, fits a little more snug and weighs a little less than the Kestrel 17OT did. It sacrifices a little load carrying capacity to achieve those traits.
The Double Vision shares all the design, function and performance of the solo Visions in a kayak for two. Offering high levels of stability and tracking, this 16 foot 8 inch boat will provide hours of paddling enjoyment for the whole family.
The Double Vision offers two generously sized keyhole cockpits that allow for easy and stable entry and exit, as well as extended foot room and increased storage capacity. New for 2011 are the awesome RSS Seats. This Double Vision is constructed from Super compound Linear Polyethylene toughness and value. The composite is made of an aramid fabric much like Kevlar.
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.
