You need to take a look at these.

I thought I had my rough water boat (CD Sirocco) and yes it loves rough water, but then I wanted a faster long distance boat, so I started looking and testing and testing and testing.
I settled on my NC Expedition which exceeds every aspect I had hoped for in a long distance boat, but what an enormous bonus it has been to have a boat that treats the rough stuff with complete disdain. This boat allows me to go into situations with total confidence where heretofore I would have had serious trepidations. That by no means is meant to disparage the Sirocco's prowess, but the NC is really that good.
Check them out at nckayaks.com. The Expedition might be a little bigger than you are interested in, but they do make a 17'-2" that is just a scaled down version.
