Stable and fast, the Current Designs Vision 150 Roto kayak with rudder offers the best characteristics of a recreational kayak in a sea-worthy design. 15 ft. length offers plenty of speed, tracking and stability during long day or overnight paddles. Swede-form construction enhances speed and maneuverability, and it allows bow to punch through waves instead of riding up and over them. Shallow-V hull enhances tracking and offers friendly stability and a lively feel in the water, and low decks minimize wind resistance. Rotomolded polyethylene construction offers performance, responsiveness and rugged durability. Keyhole-shaped cockpit is easy to enter and exit, and integrated foam thighbraces on interior coaming increase comfort when bracing or carving turns. Seat creates a natural, comfortable paddling position by tilting the entire seat pan up and away from cockpit floor. Use the lever-lock knob (it's similar to a quick-release fork on a bike wheel) to set the seat pan to the desired height. Locking mechanism prevents both side-to-side and up-and-down motion. To prevent numbness, seat pan features a contoured space for lower vertebrae and is covered with plush, nonabsorbent, very thick padding. Seatback moves up and down and back and forth, and it articulates to move with your paddling motion. Sliding bar adjusts foot pegs without having to get out and reach inside cockpit. Cockpit-deployable rudder enhances tracking in rough weather; use the foot pegs to direct the rudder and steer the kayak. Rear hatch provides enough storage for an overnight trip and features an easy-to-use, rubberized hatch cover. Bow hatch features rubberized cover and an additional, hard cover with straps to protect contents from splashes. Bulkheaded bow and stern hatches provide generous dry cargo storage during extended voyages and enhance flotation when hatches are sealed.
