We have a vacation home on a big lake in Sweden. The lake is a five-minute walk from the house, and I would really like to get a kayak to get out on the water. We have a rec sit-up-on kayak for two, which is great when we're two and the weather is very warm, but I'd like to get something small and light that I can use by myself (including wheeling it over the hill by myself to the lake on the canoe wheels we have - the kayak we have is HEAVY). I would only be using it in calm weather, and for short trips of between a couple hours and a day. I'd prefer something that gives me the option to keep dry, so that I can use it into the fall when the temperatures drop. I'd like it to be reasonably stable, but I don't know how stability affects other aspects of the boat. I'd like to be able to pack food, drink, camera, an extra jacket etc. What should I be aware of when I choose it? I'm assuming that a knowledgeable salesperson will steer me right, but I'd like to have some advice from kayakers as well. I might try to find one used, with no salesperson to discuss with. I know there are rec, touring, expedition kayaks, and that expedition is way more than I need. How limited is rec? What's the user-experience difference between rec and touring? At the moment I'm not thinking a specific price range. I'd like to first figure out what type/combination of features would be best in my situation. After that, I can start to think price within that category. Thank you in advance!
