Default New Quiver

Looking for some advice on updating my quiver. I currently have a Trance 94 04 and an Acid 74 05. Weight 66kg. Sailing mostly rivers and Great Lakes Canada with yearly trips to the ocean at Cape Hatteras. Current sail quiver 6.0, 5.3, 4.7, 4.2 and 3.7. Advanced B&J sailor learning to sail the ocean, looking to learn learn freestyle and tired of back and forth sailing.

Other board is 12-6 SUP which I paddle as much as possible ocean and flatwater and lightwind sail and wave sail. If I had to keep one board this would be it because it does everything. The SUP covers me from 0 - 15 knots. Sailed it in much higher wind and loved it then as well. Something about strapless!

Thinking of replacing the Trance first with a K94 with the hope that I can learn some freestyle and still use it for B&J and onshore wave sailing in the Great Lakes. Although I wonder if a Flare might do the same thing with an obvious bias for more flatwater but with slightly better early planing?

Looking to replace the Acid 74 with maybe 2 boards although I would love to some advice on a 1 or 2 board replacement. The current 20 ltr drop is doable and I use the Acid for 3.7 - 4.7. The problem is that it is very gusty inland and the Acid seems to have an on/off switch.

Thinking I would like to try the Quads but can't figure which one or ones would replace the Acid. From what I have read the Q71 would seem to be the ideal 1 board replacement but what if I wanted to go to a 2 board replacement and expand my sail quiver to carry a 3.3?
Q66 and Q76?

Finally majority of wave sailing is the Great Lakes which is pretty well dead on shore.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
