No doubt both are great boats. However, if creeking is your goal then there is no doubt that the Habitat is the ticket. Creeking generally implies steep, big drops, and manky. Which the Burn can get get hung up and will go deeper. The Habi 74 shines. I love the boat. It is super stable, tracks well, rolls easy, boofs great, resurfaces quick, and should seem darn near perfect for your size. Hands down it is the best. I also have a punk rocker, which I really like for the super steep, fast, mankiest mank mank hair type stuff, but mostly find the Habitat to be more stable and to track better. I think it is probably even a great big water boat. So, if creekin' is your order, then go with that Habitat.
