    Yeah, taking a newborn on a kayak is grounds for a stabbing, generally.

And you're going to take a big performance hit looking at recreational sit in kayaks shorter than 14'.
    My storage situation is such that a 14 foot boat causes a bit of a problem if I want to go out myself.

    I've got a couple of touring kayaks I'm considering. The Necky Looksha 12 and the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 125. I'm keeping under $1000 for a new boat budget-wise.

    I'm definitely going to get some sort of transport tool at some point.
