IMO you're better off getting something rotomolded, rather than kevlar or glass or inflatable - dragging a glass or kevlar/gelcoat job once it's laden down with gear MIGHT happen. If you drag a rotomolded poly job, what's gonna happen? - you'll scuff the bottom a little. Look at the Perception Carolina or the Old Town Nantucket. Both are in the same weight range, both have the same relative primary and secondary buoyancy; both have hatches and balance out okay with gear loaded fore and aft. Both will float about 400 lbs. You don't really have to carry a poly kayak. Gee, in a poly kayak you could even slide down the stairs at the light if you wanted to
