@ 5'9 & 185 Lbs, am I too big for a Huck?

I am looking to buy one and some people have told me I am too big. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

You should be just fine in the Huck. I'm your weight and I own a Huck. I've never felt too heavy for the boat, or I've never been unable to make the kayak perform properly. It boofs great, excellerates quickly, turns on a dime. It's perfect for Colorado.

I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.

5'11, 210 & the Huck is the best creak boat I have even owned (CFS, H2, Phat, Rocket). You're fine.
Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.

I'm 185 but 6' 2" tall.

I love it and I demoed every creek boat available at the time. You're well within the weight range for the boat. I particularly like it's shortness. It makes the transition from the playboat to creeker a bit easier. In fact...the Huck drives very much like a's easy to boss around. I don't think you'll be dissapointed.
