Liquid Logic Remix 69

I wanted to know if the Liquid Logic Remix 69 would be a good fit for me. I'm 6'1" with a 34" inseam and weight 185#. A boat of this size just became available in my area and I wanted to know if I should buy it. I've read good reviews for the remix for someone who is just starting to run Class 4, but want to make sure it won't be undersized for me. Haven't been able to find a place to demo this boat and I don't want to miss the opportunity to buy this one.

Let me know your thoughts!!!

I think its going to be on the small side. I am sure you could stuff yourself in the boat but the 79 would be a better boat for you IMHO.

at your weight and height I would go for the Large a medium is just to small for that style of boat imo go for the 79. the 69 has a max weight of 180 so that should answer your question

Try not to be on the lower side of a creeker weight rating. It leads to issues.

I would like to edit this statement:

Try not to be on the Upper side of a creeker weight rating. It leads to issues.

Looks like you saw the wrong line. The max weight for the 69, according to that site, is 220. It was the 59 that lists it as 180 (they listed them in an odd order). Weight wise, he'd be fine on the 69, but not sure on fit.

Demoing would be your best bet, if you have the time to try one out before purchasing it.

I get that the max weight for the 69 comes in at 220. But 220 is a reach for that boat. I'm around 185 and once I get wet, add rescue gear, and lunch - I'm pushing 200lbs. I have sat in the 69 in an eddy and it felt too small and loaded down to me. I didn't even take it down the river. I do not trust the 220 weight rating by LL.

If you are adding a bunch of weight, then go off the added weight. I was just correcting the misreading of the weight limit.

Ideally, you want to be in the middle of the weight range. 180lbs is the middle exactly, but if you add a bunch of weight, then 180lbs. is not your weight.
