James, I would have to agree with Rich on this one. For the best all around boat, I'd choose either the AH or the NB. (I personally chose the NB.) The Arctic Hawk handles better (less weathercocking) but I felt like the NB had better acceleration and just fit me better. I'm about your size, so I imagine you will fit similarly. The NB is a "tighter" feel than the AH in the cockpit, but there is no question the AH is a beautifully designed boat that performs really well. Either would be a good choice for the uses you have stated, but if you go with the NB put a retractable skeg in it to help the weathercocking.
