RE: SAILS for CARVE 144
I have a Carve 133 and it is very happy on sails between 8.5 and 7.0 (below that I switch to a Carve 111). I am a similar weight to you. With the 144 I expect you could handle up to a 9.5. My 8.5 is a Severne NCX and my other sails are Severne Gators, plus a Neil Pryde V8. I think you can stick almost anything on a Carve and go out and have a good time!
