Seriously, read the thread before you start calling me out. The OP said size 12 or 13 boots. I'm size 12, so yeah I think I am pretty qualified to suggest a wide board is what he wants given that's exactly what I ride.
The guy is welcome to take my advice or leave it, but he's asking for advice and since I'm pretty similar in terms of a lot of the specs I thought I might be able to help. Let's not derail this thread into a pretty pointless debate.

+1 for the 2012 Machete. First board I bought (I'm intermediate/advanced) and it has been great both on hardpack/icy stuff at home (New Zealand) and medium pack and powder in BC. Learning some freestyle stuff now and it's excellent for that too.
The best thing about it - every time I screw up, I can point to something I did wrong. Never feels like the board is the problem! It's been able to handle pretty much everything I've thrown at it so far.
With a size 10 boot you may want to consider the 154W. I'm size 12 and ride the 157W.
And I am seriously sorry for your alzheimer man
you could help more if you can refrain urself from posting
