I am from the area and do similar kayaking. I started out with the Prijon Calabria ( 14.5 long by 24" wide ). A good serviceable boat for your needs.

When I took it to bigger water I saw its limitations. I purchased a Prijon Baracuda ( 17ft lond by 21 " wide )

This definitely made boating more " interesting " I.E it is tippy in conditions.

This experience begat the Valley Aquanaut ( 17.4 ft. by 22" wide ) This boat with the skeg is my preferred choice in big more confused water.

For what it is worth I mainly use the 'cuda for local Susquehanna River runs.
