Looks like Old Town doesn't sell sit-on-top kayaks anymore. But REI had quite a few of them. Once you find a make and model you like, you can see where you can get the best price. It's also good if you can try out different models first (yes, some places let you get them wet!). Maine Sport in Rockport has a pond and so does Belgrade Canoe and Kayak and he'll dicker on the price. Wilderness Systems had some nice looking ones.
They sure do have a bunch of sit on top ones. I was surprised at the cost. Some were $5000.
I have everything I need and thank you all for the support.

I guess I don't really need lessons. On my last trip I figured it out that I should not try so hard not to get wet. I was going out in jeans, sneakers, long sleeve shirts and the like. Then a couple of jet shiers pulled up as I was getting out of the thing and I noticed how easy it was when you could just get in the water and have fun.
Walking in the woods and bushes my not be so bad with shorts. I could even bring a pair with me if need be.
Now I'm looking for a motor.
A 300 pound payload, sit on top, shallow draft and a motor. I think this exists. It's called a Jet Ski, they have been making them for a few years now...:p
