I was at the farm store today and they have gotten in a selection of Kayaks, and they had one in particular I was interested in getting (lightweight enough for me to lug from my car to a water source pretty easily) but I don't know anything about 'em. I'm not planning on going over any rapids - we don't have any just lakes and placid rivers around here.
Does anyone here have a kayak and can give me some info about how to pick out a good one not just one that I think looks good? Is there that much difference between them other than size/weight? Also will I need a boat license for it since it's not an inflatable raft? If yes, what do those generally run?
