Flying Squirrel 85 - Upper Weight Limits

Hey -

Anyone out there paddling the FS85 that is in the 220# range. I am short and stout (5'-8" All mucle or course) and like smaller boats due to the front deck being lower so my legs lock in.

Any input would be great, I am going to use it for the daily IV and easy V, no ovenights so that is not in the equation.

Thanks
Chris

I paddle a FS85 but I'm 150 and I think you will notice a lot better performance with a FS95. Maybe you could add more foam to the seat so you sit a little higher up, or you could add more padding by your knees. Those extra ten gallons will treat you well.
