Sounds like you have measurements pretty close to Hindman's 16' double ender. Yours is a few inches shorter, a tad narrower, a tad taller (so less flare to the sides overall). Overall, sounds like a pretty similar boat.

16' on these boats refers to the length around the sheer rail (the length of the sheet of plywood you need to make the sides).

As far as Class I-II or III, I'd say it'll handle whatever the operator can handle.

Your boat is much smaller than mine, which has a stem to transom length of 17', and is 54" across the chines and 82" b/w the oarlocks. I seem to recall it is around 19.5' along the sheer.

I'm sure it will be a fine gear hauler and will likely be pretty stable, but what's on my mind right now is how hard it might be to roll over after a flip.
