This is a follow-up on my previous message. I’ve found a few more kayaks. I was curious if these are any good. I decided to skip on the sea lion.
I’m a 6’ 2" 35yo male. I weigh around 195. I’ve done 4 hour canoe trips etc and recently done a kayak trip. I’ve found that I like kayaks better because they seem pretty light weight and easy to transport. I also was doing some research and found that people use them to travel far distances. I have a goal of going to a few of the islands within the Chesapeake Bay (MD). There is Hart-Miller island and Smith Island (example). I guess I want to start small and work my way up. My concern is cost. I don’t think I should get a recreation kayak as I will outgrow it. I was looking at Touring/Sea kayak. I found a few on craigslist and was wondering if anybody knew anything about these.

-15’ Walden Passage. Touring / Sea Kayak: This seems better, but not sure. https://baltimore.craigslist.org/fuo/d/kayak/6264748638.html
