I just sold my kayak (cockpit was too difficult to get into after knee surgery) and am busily searching Craigslist and my local dealers for another day touring kayak with a bigger cockpit.
How about a canoe? Molly would be happy riding along ( Charly, the beagle, loves the canoe, as did Molly the spaniel and Rafiki the English setter ). You can sit, or kneel, or stand in a canoe.
Check out http://www.westerncanoekayak.com/
They sell canoes and kayaks and sometimes offer 'seconds' You can also use their web-site to narrow down the type of canoe or kayak that fits you.
Oh, and when you paddle a canoe, the water doesn't run down the paddle into your arm pit.
I'll see you at the rally with my Clipper Prospector 16.
