I'm your exact size and did a ton of research before buying. I ended up with the ocean kayak prowler big game. I really like it and it fits the big guys perfectly. I believe it is rated for 550# and I've had it loaded with every bit of that without issue.

I just bought an old town solo 119 which I haven't used yet, but you might want to look at those. You can get the inexpensive knock off at Dicks for 399.00. I've read a million reviews on them and they too seem very stable and more kayakish than a typical canoe. I'll let know after the weekend.
