Fitting a remix 59???

You don't want to paddle a boat at the very top of it's weight range. It won't handle correctly. The LL Remix 59 is only 59 gallons, that's closer to the volume you would want in a playboat at your size. You will have to move the bulk head all the way out, and your legs will likely still be very tight, if they even fit. If your into the Remix I would try and find a 69 or a 79, and ideally demo it on water before purchasing....

I'm afraid I agree with you. I found a pretty decent deal on a 59 but id rather have something I can be comfortable in. Thanks for your input!

I'm 5'7" and 165 pounds and the Remix 59 was too small for me. I demoed both the 59 and 69. I went with the 69.

At your height I would look solely at the 79. I am 6'3" and can paddle the 69, but its cramped and uncomfortable after about 35min. The 79 fits way better and allows you remain comfortable all day, and have a boat that performs the way you want it to.
