I’m a 6’ 2" 35yo male. I weight 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.
1973 Tyne UK Kayak: I can’t find anything about this, but it’s fiberglass, has no ports and seems like it’s high quality. https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/boa/d/uk-tyne-kayak/6271885193.html
Perception Aquaterra: I was told that this is of a older hull design and that it’s older (1999), based on my reserach. It seems like a good kayak at least a good brand. https://baltimore.craigslist.org/boa/d/17-perception-aquaterra-kayak/6277444707.html
