  boat designb is boat specific

Boat design is boat specific. The "visible sections where the profile and curvature of the hull changes" sounds like what is called hard chines. WS also has boats with soft chines.

There are some differences that go across the whole line. For example, WS uses the same plastic for all of its boats, and this is likely a slightly different type of polyethylene than what Current Designs uses.

Finding a carbon fiber (or even fiber glass) paddle for under $200 is going to be hard. Most of the fiber glass ones I see run from $250-300, and carbon fiber run for closer to $400 new.
