Everything I read says that the 156 Hovercraft rides like a 170, and if this is really the case the added manoeuvrability of the smaller size makes this an awesome package. I am just slightly worried that the 156 might be a little short on thge bigger stuff. On the flipside if I go for a 160, I would lose the benefit of the 156 in the tight stuff for a bit more float. In all honesty if I was convinced that the 156 would float well enough for me it would be fairly easy.
Anyone any ideas?

Waist is huge... the A-Frame is a 158, the Hovy 156. Can't wait to float.
