I would think the only thing you might be disappointed in is it might be a little harder to learn to cartwheel, but the right hole or eddy line anything is possible. It is a bigger boat and I was a little heavier than you and never had any problems.
It is an older design and has a lower deck so your legs do sit a little flatter than they do in the modern boats, so I would definitely sit in it and make sure it jives with you.
