That's your best bet, Robert - especially if you insist on using a kayak paddle when solo.

It should be pretty easy to find a real good deal on a used general-use tandem. It will take a bit more effort to find a used higher-performance solo - especially with your size consideration. So You might consider making it a quest to find that solo canoe for you while knowing a great deal on a tandem will come along at some point.

Or - if you know you won't be paddling open water in windy conditions, you might consider a Prospector model and learning to paddle it solo "Canadian style". In that case, a fella your size could get by with one 17' tandem. Still won't be a speed-demon, but more versatile than the Pack.
