Hi Larry,

As you are heavy, and not particularly fond of waterstarts, I would steer you towards the 144. It is also likely to be more optimal for your 9 m sail.

133 : too small
144 : ok :)

Hi

I am your weight. I use a GO165 for light winds, however I have used my 9.4 on my HS133, it went eally well. Perhaps you should also consider the GO139 and Isonic 133
