There are thoughts I had above which did not make it into that post.
The Delta 14.5 is a perfectly respectable boat for a number of purposes and can be nice to have around for a casual day of poking around on the water. The sub-16 ft length is easier for doing things like marshes and similar places that are a lot of fun to explore.
The Delta 14.5 is a good entry boat for many people. It should be quite "saleable" should the time come.
But most importantly, getting a whole new kayak for your wife is a darned nice idea. It would be most surprising if she did not appreciate your effort.
