I have a wonderful 25# Colden flashfire that I have tripped with in the ADKs for years. I am your size and weight and carry a little more camp stuff. it has worked wonderfully for the trips I like. Is it the ideal big lake canoe? No My colden namad is, but the Flashfire will do lakes fine. Where the flashfire really shines is in manoverability--it's the perfect canoe for the osswagochie's twists and turns. I also can speak highly Of Paul's meticulous craftsmanship,honesty and quality. I paddled the other canoe briefly, but not enough to form a strong opinion.
