I've been looking for a kayak for a few months to do small lake paddling, lake erie, and rivers. My thing will be distance, and I will do camping out of the kayak. Next summer I'll be camping out of it for 100 days, just for reference. I've been boating and canoeing for a while, and have water experience. I'm looking for a touring kayak and have seen perception eclipse 17s that look good, with mostly good reviews. Then there are some $1000+ kayaks, but I'm looking for around 6-800 used, since I'm getting two. Suggestions or what to stay away from would be great. If it matters, I'm 5'7", 170, and very athletic/nimble.
Thanks for any input on the matter.
