Given your weight but that you want to do camping (expeditioning somewhat).......I'd go middle of the road..........14', medium/moderate profile, 24" wide, two hatches, .......my favorite in this category is a Daggar......I bought one used that's 13'8" and have paddled it to death in all kinds of seas. And I am 5'9" 200 lbs (old guy lol).

I am also a rudder-person/paddler......have paddled both with and without, and I much prefer "with".
