Glad to hear you have been enjoying your 2002 Start!
A formula 162, or an Apollo might plane a bit earlier for a fellow
your weight than the Start, and I do not think you would have
any issues with the volume.
It will float lower in the water than your Start, for sure, but should
still provide you with a stable platform to uphaul in winds < 15 knots.
If possible, check your local launch and see if you can borrow a formula
board for a coupe of runs, or maybe just climb on the board close to shore
to see how it floats.
Hope this helps,
