There've been lots of threads about this in the past, here and on other sites like SK forum. I'm 6'5", 230, with size 15 feet. My current touring boats are the Current Designs Isle, Prijon Marlin, and Prijon Kodiak. Other boats that I know fit me are the P & H Delphin, the Wilderness Systems Zephyr (and Tempest 180), and Impex Assateague. A lot of times smaller people make suggestions about boats based on their perception of what "should" fit. Those suggestions have usually not worked out for me. Also, do not wear tennis shoes when trying on boats. Wear a pair of water shoes or something that you will wear when paddling. Lastly, in my personal opinion, a tall person needs a boat width of 23 or 24 inches. Many would probably disagree with that point.
