Loved a Tempest 165...other alternatives?

GTS will be too tight. I’m 5’6, 160 lbs and the GTS is snug (in a good way) for me. Likely won’t work for the OP.

Then a gt. I get in my extremes at 260 6’ 38" waist and 69. Now 225 and pants are real loose slip in much easier. Solstice GT seems loose now.

I have had a Tempest 165 for quite a few years. I also weigh about 170 pounds but I’m only 5’9". My other boat that I really enjoy is a Dagger Alchemy. The Alchemy name is gone now but I understand the Dagger Stratos 14.5 is very similar. If I were you I’d test drive the Stratos. I think you’d need the bigger model. Check it out if you can.

I just saw that the original post was done in July of 2023. I’m probably wasting keystrokes here.
