Diesel 75

I'm a big guy: about 195-200 and 6'2''

I've demoed the Diesel 65 and found it was a great boat but a little short. Anyone paddled the 75? I'm looking into a new boat... and I'm not exactly a pro but would like to get into more river running and moderate creeking. A little play here and there but not a big concern.

Any other suggestions appreciated.

I paddled a diesel 75

I am 5'10" 190 lbs. The diesel was a good river runner, punched holes well, carved pretty well on eddy turns. I know folks have used it as a creeker too. I don't think that you will get much play out of it though.
