Weight factor

I am thinking thru my yak purchase for the coming year. One of the things that seems very important to me is weight. I plan to use the yak a lot in my favorite places that are dangerous to wade: the flats. This means unless I have the time to wait for the flood I will be doing a lot of hiking with the yak.

A tough molded yak can be dragged, but a fiberglass / kevlar yak like an eddyline is so light you can carry it over the clam flats to the truck. Overall I think light weight is an advantage out of the water, what about in the water?

Do you get blown around too easily in a very light yak? What is a light yak, and what is a heavy one (in pounds)?

I think I might be able to work the high end of the price range if I combine the sale of a dory, pontoon boat and xmas into one total.
