We have a Sevylor inflatable 2man kayak that was around 250. Its covered in a hard wearing cover and we've grounded it many times without problems. We took that to Cayton Bay last year and used it in the sea for a while. Hardest thing was getting over the waves but once thats been mastered its pretty good at sea.

Only reason we bought inflatable is we have nowhere to store a full rigid boat at home.

This is the kayak we have. Its a little more money but so much more hard wearing. We've grounbded ours loads when coming back in at the side of rivers etc so its worth having the extra cover that protects it.

Forgot to add...we saw a video of someone white water kayaking in it and it looked to handle pretty well for an inflatable...another reason we decided to get it. Has a large removeable fin underneath for stability too. They'll never handle quite like a full rigid plastic kayak but they're far better than a few years back.
