A coworker owns the advanced elements boat you are interested in. He has used it on a few easy rivers and only almost died a couple of times but found out how truly horrible they are in any sort of wind last year. He was out in fairly mild 10-15kt winds and couldn't go straight across the wind or make any progress into it.
The sea eagle inflatable should be a good choice if you limit it to small ponds or heated swimming pools in SE alaska.
