Hi Klemmy,
I agree with mcross 19, the Carve 151 could work for you, but without any provision for a centerboard or center fin, you are presenting yourself with quite a challenge.
Since you are small and your wife is smaller, a smaller rig, particularly for your wife right at first, will really help her to get into the sport without a lot of strained muscles and the drama for too much sail too soon in the learning curve.
Did the boards you used during your instruction a couple of years ago have centerboards or center fins?
Learning to "rail" a large shortboard to sail/stay upwind in the beginner stages can be quite daunting.
