  It's not unrealistic

Here's a few boats within my budget with a 350 Lb (or higher) rating. I'll link to them in the order I'm considering them.

Ok, now that I have proven that I can find a boat I want, that's not a barge (Canoe), and within my budget, can we get back on the point of the thread?
No one, I MEAN NO ONE has addressed my question...

What do you think of the weight ratings and should I stick at 350 (or higher), or would I be ok in a boat rated for 300?

If you think I should paddle a bathtub, that's fine. It doesn't help me with my question though. ;)
