seems to oil can in direct proportion to how flat it is. If you want to limit oil canning, do not buy a flat bottom Royalex boat.

I'll leave it for others to suggest which boats might work. The Swift Raven and the Nova Craft Supernova come to mind as load capable solos, but I have no experience with either one.

At your weight and height, you might also consider setting up a small tandem for a solo. I have done that with several different canoes and prefer them to dedicated solos. When considering small tandems, it helps to be tall as it makes reaching across the boat easier.
