You are THE height and weight for the 165. The trick to making it feel better; make entry and exit better, is to move the seat back one bolt hole... about 2 inches. I have a very long, lean friend (6'5" maybe?) who paddles and enjoys his 165 with the seat moved back. You can pay a shop to do it or do it yourself.
I moved the seat back in mine. Also moved the seat back in my Alchemy.
