I bolded the lightest and heaviest in my data set. If you add a motor the weight will obviously increase.

Kayaks are a blast to take out on the water, they need no gas, insurance, or licensing. They weigh less than canoes.

Most lakes have rentals available so you can give them a try. Here is more info.
