@movieofmenywatch You may want to join a club. Most members will be pleased to show you their stuff so you get to try boats out. I would recommend a course aimed at what you intend to do. Sea kayaking is expensive but it is oh so rewarding.

@movieofmenywatch If you are headed to the ocean you wil want something that affords confidence in a swell. (longer that 14 feet) At 6' and 210 you will want a slightly larger boat than I may at 5'8" and 170 lbs. At 16' 6" my Capella is a joy untill I load it up wuith stuff for a 3 day trip and it sinks a little deeper in the water: It becomes a slug. The 17' 8" NDK Explorer is a larger boat and it does this nicely. On larger lakes you will also want a full size boat.

@movieofmenywatch Wooden kayaks ned maintanence. If you make it yourself and can fix it they are the best IMHO. I don't have hte skill or patience to go there.

@movieofmenywatch What type of paddling do you do? What size are you? What are your aspirations? Puddles and streams, ponds and small lakes; any rec boat will do. White water you may want to get into something more .... Athletic. In the ocean a sea or touring boat normally starts at 15''6" with exceptions. The IMPEX Mystic is a player at 14" my explorer is 17'10" or so, the Quest is about 19' These are not hard and fast rules (none are) but a decent reference.

I am an ACA Open Water Coastal Kayak Instructor, managed a paddle sport shop for 8 years, and currently have my own business teaching kayaking. I've been a paddler for over 20 years. The Stingray IS a "rec" kayak and 29" IS very wide. Very few single kayaks are wider than 29". Most rec kayaks are between 25"-30". The Stingray should only be used on small, inland lakes and slow moving rivers.

You say that stingray 14 is a "rec", no, it's an entry-level touring kayak. Also, it's not "Very wide", just average at 29" wide.
