Old Town 138T http://www.oldtowncanoe.com/loon138t.html

Pluses:
Space, both cockpit and storage (wet storage)
Tandem with sliding front seat for solo paddleing so it's a good family craft
Durable, nothing fancy to worry abotu getting knocked around.
Stable, I can get in and out in 2 - 3 ft of water without tipping pretty easily

Minuses:
Weight, tough to drag across long beach stretches. Very awkward to carry single handled for any distance.
Tracking: Might eb a function of the front seat position but it points up into the wind if it's blowing. You'll find yourself fighting to keep on course. Not a problem with two aboard.
Transportation: the tandem means it's longer than a solo. Might not fit safely in the back of the pickup without using a rack. (You're welcome to try it out )
