looking for a recreational kayak but a pack canoe.
Used to get to hard to reach places for hunting and fishing. Not saying these are the only boats you should consider but what do you think of them?
Eight is simply too small for your weight. Ten is marginal. 12 -13 would be better. These boats can be loaded into the back of a pickup with a little ingenuity.
Look at the weight.
These are canoes. Adirondacks have a long history of double blade canoeing.
Swift also makes pack canoes.
Little more pricey.
