You can ride the 165w and shouldn't have any issues, although the 169w will be a bit more stable at speed etc, due to the larger size. I've been riding a 165w Skunk Ape HP this season and while I'm not 6'6" my weight swings from 260-280lbs depending on the time of year etc. The Apes are built for big riders, so really can't go wrong with the board.

I'm about the same size and the biggest board I've ridden is a 168 cambered Rome Flag. Right now I'm on a NeverSummer Legacy 166. I personally didn't like the SkunkApe, I felt it was dead feeling. Not bad but not overwhelming. In reality the 4cm isn't going to make that much difference to the overall stability of the board. It all depends on preference and what type of terrain your riding. If you're riding Pow and steeps you the extra length makes sense. If you're riding groomers or small mountains I'd say go for the shorter board.
