Paddle both and check for fit. The P&H Capella 166 I had for a while was pretty high volume - perhaps too big for your size. My friend who is 6'4" and 275# paddled it more than I did.
It was a very well made boat and a nice performing hull. That said, the fit was awful for me (6'3" and 180#). The seat was too narrow for me and I had to replace it with a foam seat. The thigh grips were terrible.
