The Marlin would be an excellent choice and will easily handle any of the conditions you run into. Keep in mind the South African kayaks are designed for simply awful conditions and are used in what we would call storm conditions as a matter of course.
There is a noticeable difference between the Dorado and the Marlin (which is more like the Pelican) in weight. I see the Dorado for the bigger guys and for those who just can't sleep at night for lack of center hatch access to an interior (heavy) fishbox.
You can do quite well without it.
For a nice review on the Marlin/Pelican:
