Hi Roly,
When I say you can uphaul a 100-110 liter board, I mean in reasonably flat water.
Out in big swells and chop, in the ocean, I agree, you need something like the Carve 145 or a GO/Start that's really wide a stable to do a simple uphaul and get underway.
What I meant by you can uphaul the smaller board is that the board has adequate volume to float you with the deck only slightly awash.
95 liters, at your weight would be tricky, but still possible in the right conditions.
Keep working on your waterstarts, as that's what's going to get you out in higher winds and rougher conditions on smaller, more comfotable boards.
