Some kayaks are designed to carry stuff and land on rocky shores. Others are designed to go fast, surf, etc. If 95% of your outings are day trips, then light is very nice indeed. There is nothing like a very light paddle combined with a very light boat.
I tried to get the P&H Cetus in a very light layup with no day hatch and no front storage hatch, but they refused.
