  What do you want to do with it?

From what you wrote, it sounds like you want to travel from point A to point B and be able to handle rough conditions. That's going to point you to a different set of boats compared to what you would be better off if you were primarily playing in rough water...

I'd say the Cetus MV would be a great choice for tripping if you don't mind the hefty weight... Very reassuring initial and secondary stability, yet maneuverable and quick.

Tempest 170? There are so many boats that would do what you seem to describe that I'd go by fit and price, unless you got some other differentiating criteria to throw at us to think about...

The Chatham 16 would certainly handle rough conditions well, but I don't know if you can stuff it with 10 days worth of "stuff", plus I think it is a slow boat for traveling in a straight line...
