Current designs Kestrel

Another kayak to look at is the Current Designs Kestrel in composite or kevlar. It used to be made in thermoformed plastic (called TCS) and you can still sometimes find a used one in TCS. Old Orchard shows a used TCS in stock for $1000: http://oakorchardcanoe.com/usedkayaks.php
--Very large cockpit (18.5 x 39; depth 14")
--Light (43 lbs in composite or TCS; kevlar 39 lbs)
Main drawback: It's 26" wide. But it paddles nicely for that width.
