Ocean Kayaks are good kayaks. They take a fair bit of water to float them, though, compared to other similarly sized kayaks. That can make a difference if you float ledgey rivers, or not if you float places that consistently have more than 6" of water.
Also take a look at the Perception Tribe line.
Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 or 120 are good kayaks. They've changed things up recently, so some people are replacing their old ones for ones with the new features. You may be able to find one used at a reasonable price.
