the max. capacity of the Aquanaut LV is 210 pounds. That's paddler plus gear.

Having paddled a composite 'naut LV for three years I have no reason to dispute that.

Fwiw, I'm 5'9" and between 150 - 155 and I found the Aquanaut LV to be an ideal fit for me.

The OP is at the very upper range for this boat. Even if he just paddles with a day kit this kayak is going to sit very deep in the water for him and he will have a hard time getting the bow and stern to 'break free' when maneuvering.
