I am planning to do some playboating to add another dimension to my paddling. I am 6'2", 16 stone with size 10 feet and used to being in creek boats most of the time. What would be a good boat for me?
All the usual scratches...

Try all the large sizes - I get on OK in a Large Jed and if you don't need ratchets the price on the basic spec is attractive. I am a bit heavy for mine but I am heavier than you, I am shorter but only had to peel 2 layers off the foot block so reckon you would get in. Might not be the right boat for you though so try some of the others too before you decide.
Pyranha Molan large, I'm 6ft 3 with size 12 feet but only 12 stone, it was perfect size wise I could sit in all day with the connect 30, behaves very much like a creek boat when rolling and river running, had to get rid of it as I was too light and so couldn't do much, got a Robson blowfish instead (but only because I'm slender). At your weight the molan would be a good choice.
