  Couple of things

What do your fellow paddlers paddle?

Plastic or fiberglass?

Whats your budget?

I would get at least a 14 foot kayak.

Just 2 months ago sold my used 14 foot tsunami 140 for $650 on craigslist so look there too.

Get a proper loading device for kayak to car will make a 55 pound kayak easy to load. Some use a roller from the back of car others lift from the side. Look around. Malone has a lower cost loader onto there jbars. I uses a roller with v-saddles from a place near me oak orchard kayak makes and sells .

Oh Dicks sporting goods conduit 13 doesn't have deck lines just bungee cord. Deck lines are really needed for safety, they could be added if you want. At least it has 2 sealed hatches for floatation.Still a wide kayak at 26 inches. Try to stick to 24 inch and smaller for width for speed.
