Good on you for wanting to get out and paddle around. Figure out how you'll store and transport a kayak--do you want to lift it onto a vehicle roof, use a pickup truck bed, or a trailer? Thermoformed yaks are lighter than the rotomolded ones. Hurricane, Necky, Old Town, and others have kayaks in the 45-55 lb range. Don't forget to budget for a good, light paddle and a comfortable PFD.
