I guess you need to decide, how far will you be paddling and against wind or current.
If you are in a pond or flat back water and not going very far the limitations of its hull shape will not bother you. If you are going to be paddling longer distances you might want to get a kayak. Then if paddling in the wind on open water, you might want a rudder for said kayak. I'm not discussion various kayak options unless you want to go that route.
