Thanks for the quick response and that kayak would be an option. I wasn't even aware of that manufactuer. That gives me some more options.

I am 5'6" and 200lbs. The 280lb minimum would be a combination of myself and gear. Do you think I am pushing it witht the weight?

I have often thought about bringing the dog along. However, I have a heavier 14ft canoe for that. This kayak would be used for solo spots only. Something to get me and my gear to the location. Often, that means, a long paddle, then through muck/cattails where you sink up to your knees. The kayak/gear will be pushed or dragged along.

I forgot to mention durability. It would also float rivers once ponds freeze up to jump shoot ducks. Some of these rivers get shallow and I may hit or scrape right over rocks. I may break ice with it too. So durability is a must.
