capella's a nice boat

...but I'd third the advice here. Get out and demo paddle. You're in a great area to do so, plenty of vendors your way. Why? Because you might think you like the capella enough to buy it - right until you try another boat.
I'd also get that first boat used. Because more likely than not, your preferences will evolve and you'll be buying again.
