Would the Perception Acadia be able to handle class II with a fairly new kayaker?

I'd look at getting a sit on top for class two. Water wieghts about 7lbs per gallon. The Acadia has no bulkhead or hatch, so youll want to have float bags in the boat for moving water, otherwise you could be swiming with a pretty heavy sea anchor! Or look at the boats that have a bulkhead dry compartment. These boats only fill the cockpit with water but the bulkhead compartment stays airtight and floats up high in the water.
