Good to know. Speed isn't an issue. And, I've had a couple of people message me instead of posting saying that a Sit-on-top should be safe with up to 50 lbs over the rated limit, provided I plug the scuppers and carry a sponge. Just be prepared for her to ride low and have a lot of splash over until I lose more wight.

I really wish I could use a SinK. But, my hip/back injuries make it almost impossible to get in and out of the cockpit. MAYBE... MAYBE... Once I've gotten down to my target weight I MIGHT be able to paddle one with an oversized cockpit opening. Since I don't plan on doing any white water, that should fine.
