I just went through this process on our motorsailer. I purchased two short sit-in kayaks (10 feet approximately) and we found they were just too unstable to board from the swim step. My wife and I have two young girls ages 2 and 4 so we also had to somehow get them from the swim step to our laps as well which resulted in my wife taking a dunk in our cold PNW water. The solution was to change to the more stable sit on top kayaks. The sit on tops have more room for the girls and they are very stable. I love the sit on tops for what we do and will not go back to a sit in unless i get serious about long distance touring in a kayak.
