Kayak Reccomendations



My son and I would like to kayak the lenghth of the entire Chesapeake Bay. We will be doing this in weekend segments.

My question is what type of kayak should I purchase for the trip. I am a 6'4" guy and weigh about 280#. Hopefully, I will be down to 260# by time for the trip, but who knows. My son has a Perception kayak that I do not fit into well and it feels like it is instantly going to capsize. We also have the leg issue and does not feel like it is going to roll over on me.

I don't think either kayak is suitable for this trip and look to purchase two new kayaks. I am just wondering what would be the best for my body size and this type of trip.

Any suggestions and/or reccomendations would be greatly appreciated.
