Re: canoe vs. kayak
I wouldn't be afraid to pack up my Wilderness Ride 135 and go for a few days. Plenty of room, stable enough to stand in, easy enough to maneuver, and since it's an ocean stye kayak, easy on and off. The only drawbacks are, you'd have to pack creatively to keep things from getting wet due to the built-in drain holes, and is a touch on the heavy side, so portages kinda stink.
I know there are bigger and better (i.e. more expensive) kayaks out there, and I wouldn't be afraid to do what you plan to do in a canoe either. Having the Ride and a canoe at my disposal, the Ride would be my first choice though.
