They are both sit in kayaks known as SINKs. This is primarily a sit on top site known as SOTs. Come out of the dark side and join us bright siders. We would be happy to help you with choosing a more user friendly sit on top kayak.
If things get better with age, then I am approaching magnificence.

You might try www.paddling.net. That site also has a "Reviews" section where you can read reviews (organized by brand) written by owners on the very kayaks you are interested in. I would bet there are several reviews on the Necky Manitou 14. Not so sure though about the Boreal Design.
