The best way to determine which type of Kayak is best for you to to try them out. I recommend you find a place that sells them and lets you try their product. If you can't find a try before you buy place visit a Kayak rental shop. I would recommend you try sit on top kayaks as well as sit in kayaks they both have very different characteristics. I tried both and ended up with a sit on top ocean kayak. I used in in the ocean, rivers, and back country swamps in south Georgia. The one I selected the Scrambler, had drain holes built into it that allowed water to enter and exit. This was primarily for the ocean when you get swamped by a wave the water would just run out. However, when sitting in the kayak I was always sitting in about an inch of water, even with plugs (scuppers) installed to stop up the holes. This was not an issue in the summer, but in the winter it was literally a pain in the @$$.
