The weight ranges for playboats need to be taken with a grain of salt. A 190 pound dude in a medium would not be happy. If your 130 pounds, and super ripped, maybe a medium molan would work. I imagine its going to be difficult to get the boat to behave the way you want it to with that volume weight distribution.
I'm 5'9", 140 pounds, and paddle a 44 gallon nemesis. I would prefer some more volume but not enough to get a medium, which would be too large. I can control the boat fairly well. I personally would get a small molan.
If it's really bad and you can't sit in your boat for longer than a couple hours, maybe just get the medium, idk, demo that shit.
