OC-1 for 150 lb and under?

I know there have been many similar discussions, so I apologize for asking again, but it seems like there's always new boats being developed.

So, I was hoping that I could get some pros and cons for OC-1's for paddlers under 150 lbs. I paddle in the Pacific NW, mostly on flat water, but potential for getting out in moderate swells also. From what I've read in my research, Hurricane's might work (but have also read some negatives on cracking easily), Huki has several models for smaller sizes, and Stingray might work? Understanding that it's also personal preference, any opinions on quality and my specific size and use would be helpful, as well as any other makes I should consider.

Thanks in advance!!

Check out Makia or Huki V1-Z. Makia is a very versatile boat and you wont be disappointed. Stingray is just to big for gentle paddlers in your weight category. Other boats you should consider are Pegasus or Spica, never hurts to diversify.
