Go to the Current Designs website, cdkayak.com. Look under touring kayaks. They explain the differences reasonably well there. There are also several other categories of sea kayaks that you will not find there, such as unique designs like those of Warren Light Craft, and also designs influenced by people like John Winters (and, before him, L. Francis Herreshoff) that feature nearly plumb bows and sterns--boats by Epic, KayakPro, QCC, etc.
