Generalizing a lot, at your height and weight Eclipse 17ft will be a barge. It is going to be a real handful to deal with, and that is before you get it on the water.

Since you are not that far away from Cleveland, perhaps you would be interested in some offerings that has. They also have a rental place on Rocky River, roughly 1 mile of paddling before you get to the Lake Erie. Variety of boats ranging from 12 to 15 feet are available for renting. These are typically classified as transitional kayaks, there are a few sit on tops as well. If you show up on a slow day, you might be able to try a few.

Used boats can be had for a good price - check out craigslist., one of kayaking clubs in the area has classifieds as well
