Your quiver is quite large for the mono-board option. I don't think any board can be fun with sails from 4.2 to 8.5 - though some claim so. You would be frustrated at both ends. 30 L is usually a good gap. If you keep the Carve then FU-111 is on the safe side. FU-101 is fine if you're a bit more adventurous. There is enough overlap with the Carve and it should take your 5 mē as well. Replacing the Carve by FU-122 is not a bad idea either. You could get a ~90 L second hand board later for your small sails, as you don't use them very often. Tacking on short boards requires different techniques, so it may not be as stable as you wish at the beginning. Good thing that you can waterstart.
