Rec sail sizes re for "medium weight" sailors. So, as you suggest, you need to be on a bigger board. On the other hand, even 5.4 weather for you will mean rather windy day (with corresponding rougher water state) so you should not go to big either. Personally I think the K96 indeed will be the best compromise. It is a real wave board shape, but with a wider tail and wider shoulders. The board also has pretty good control, and I think 4.5 will still be within the sweet spot for you and 3.7 will be fairly OK too. You might want to add an extra fin or two to squeeze the biggest possible range out of the board.
