I have been trying to get a hold of a creeker for awhile. I am 5'4", about 135 and it's perfect for me. I paddled one this spring that belonged to RAGuides and I had to give it back. It's great in all kinds of water and is easy for me to turn, keep on line and roll. I have heard that if you are a little heavier that the boat doesn't handle quite as well, because of the hull design? Anyway, at the risk of taking another one I could purchase off the market, I highly recommend it.
