I've taken the stiffener out...

took the seat out & replaced it with a foam seat and have had no problems with oil canning. You've got 30# on me and two shoe sizes, so I don't know how you fit in the S, but if it works for you that's what counts. The stiffener is pretty short to begin with, so I doubt it'd do much in any incident severe enough to fold the boat IMO.
All the best, tOM
