to endorse the views of WW & Kaymedic. In my household we have not been at this as long as either of them have. But we, too, seem to have settled on paddling together in separate boats. In your case it would give you the advantage of choosing boats that are well matched to paddlers of substantially different weights.
You could also think about buying solos made of Royalex. The individual boats would weigh about the same as a composite tandem. Two could be had for the same cost as a single composite tandem and you won't cringe when you hit a rock.
