Specifications for Raven


Current Designs



12ft. 0in.




Way more awesome than you would expect. The one I have in inventory is a first quality but 4 year old boat and the black seat fabric is a little faded, so it is on SUPER SALE. If you order one of these I will give you $125 off. You have to see it in person. This is a very adult, kids or smaller adult kayak and it only weighs 26 pounds! You can start you child young and they will grow with it for many years. It only weighs 26 pounds! A serious kayak for small individuals. One customer purchased one for his (very lucky 4 year old grand daughter) and she loves it. He offered to demo this kayak anytime someone wants to try it out; that's how much he thinks of it. Savvy children will love the responsiveness of this performance-oriented kayak. The Raven is a sleek 20" wide for easy paddling, with a hard chine for excellent stability and a predictable feel when edging to carve a turn. It is fully outfitted with front and rear hatches and two composite bulkheads, bungee on the bow and deck, and mid-deck (for paddle float rescue). Reflective safety line and bow and stern carrying handles complete the deck outfitting. 

The Raven comes with a modified ocean cockpit, adjustable foot braces, a padded seat and seat back, as well as a padded interior deck for your thighs.

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.
