Titan Rival kayak way too big for me? (it's a bit bigger than a Pyranha 9R)

So bought a Titan Rival. I was kinda desperate to get a boat so i could get out on the river and bought this thing off of craigslist...
It says paddler weight is 130-240 lbs. I'm 130 lbs without gear and 5'4''.

I feel like i've made a huge mistake. While technically I'm in the recommended weight range, i feel like it's waaay too big. I haven't tried it on the water yet. Is there any chance at all it would be okay for me? Or should I just put it up for sale asap?

Full specs are as follows:

LENGTH: 270CM / 8'10.5"
WIDTH: 67CM / 26.4"
HEIGHT: 41CM / 16"
WEIGHT: 22KG / 48.5LBS
COCKPIT DIMENSIONS: 90.5 x 51cm / 35.5" x 20"
WEIGHT RANGE: 60-110KG / 130-240LBS

Id say that boat is way too big for you.

It might help to mention what you want out of a boat and what experience you have.

It'd be ok for tooling around on a lake, but just outfitting it to roll may be tough.

Thanks! Yeah I'll put it up for sale.

I don't have any kind of boat right now so I'm looking for a creeker or river runner. Something multi purpose.

Damn. I hope I can sell this boat.
