Eddyline is a good choice. The material is tough, the hull is fairly rigid, the designs are excellent, the boats are durable.
The Journey is a good boat, but if you need more thigh or seat room may be too restricting. I prefer to think pants size more than simple height/weight relation. You could also consider an Equinox, but it is only slightly lighter and shorter, so there is an advantage to your first choice.
Eddyline mentions on their Facebook page a new boat coming out this Fall, the Denali. Here are the Specs: 15'3" length, 24.5 beam, Capacity 400 lbs, Weight 50lbs, cockpit depth aft 10.5", cockpit depth forward 14.5", cockpit will be their 35x19 one. If you can wait a bit, I think that would be an option worth trying out.
