I sell more of these than any other sit on top and it is by word of mouth from other customers that people are first convinced; then the test paddle solidifies the deal. Designed by Jim Snyder, the legendary boat designer from good ol' West Virginia, the Mojo is the perfect all-around recreational sit-on-top kayak It features high initial and secondary stability and shallow drafting so recreational, performance, and fitness paddlers can enjoy this versatile boat in lakes, streams, bays and even the ocean. The seat has lounge chair comfort and we also incorporated a support in the rear tankwell for anyone hitching a ride in the "jump seat" facing the rear of the boat.
The paddle keeper ledge is also totally unique and securely keeps the paddle out of the way and makes storing the paddle very convenient. The hull provides the ultimate combination of performance, stability and speed so you will feel comfortable paddling this boat from the minute you start out.
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.
