A fellow Mainer! Welcome!
I have a similar story as you, used to ski, knees hurt, switched to riding at 15 and never looked back. Sugarloaf is my home, but grew up in Bangor. Where you from?
Did you rent board for all those years? I don't think you can go wrong with the Custom, or Custom X if you want something stiffer and less geared for park. I think you could benefit from trying to demo some boards though (not that many demo days in Maine though.) For the Maine ice, of all the boards I have tried, my 2 top preferences for ice are Lib Tech (TRS)/Gnu (Riders Choice) and Never Summer (SL). Within the parenthesis are the models that are in the ballpark of what you are looking for.
