what kind of boats should I buy?

I am contemplating purchasing a pair of kayaks (for my wife and I). We are planning on using them on an open bay on Cape Cod . Winds can run about a usual 6-10mph. This is really a gift for my wife. I have thought about buying a perception spectrum (14'6") and a higher end 16' w/rudder boat and letting her choose the one she finds easiest to track for herself. Any ideas from anyone would be appreciated. Both boats are used and in good condition. By other less expensive option is to buy a pair of identical perception spectrums , both w/out rudders.
