I'm closer to your weight (unfortunately a little higher right now) though shorter and currently I'm in the SuperStar/SuperFun/MegaRocker.
The other option to consider would be a SuperHero. Depends on what type of boating you plan on doing. You said class III. If you're going to be mostly just river running and want to do some overnighters (self support) with just some surfing and light playing then the SuperHero would be a good option. It'll be a little more comfy than the SuperFun. And the Hero would definitely handle the Class IV no problemo as you'll find many people on the Buzz choosing the Hero series for their creekboat.
And as others have said some other brands have boats too.
So there are definitely some options out there for you.
Another tall one here, 6'8", 200lbs, 36 inseam, 14 foot, short walks on the beach...
As kdt said jackson is your best bet. The new 2010 fun series is rumored to be a little longer and not as wide. That should put the seat a little more centered for the long legs. The 2007-current super fun boat is a great runner and good intro play boat. I bought that one because I could fit in! Then I found the superstar and quickly switched out because I can't have 3 boats and my wife have none. I can't wait to get the new monstar, a taller fella reviewed it here: Jackson Kayak - Kayak News, Kayak Photos, Kayak Videos and Kayak Stories
it sounds like I'll have no excuse for crappy playboating skills now!
I paddled the superhero and it fit pretty well right out of the box, the beauty of the jackson outfitting, love it (many) or hate it (many), is it is easily adjustable for leg room. Most other boats you will have to fiddle a lot to set it up, I've yet to fit into a liquid logic boat biggest or smallest.
The other boat I've been in is pryhana so they may be worth a look.
Good choice on losing the rubber...all those rock lines are open now!
