I'm 10 lbs heavier than you and I have a 17LT which is plenty large for me and a heap of gear. It's actually a bit too large when unloaded and does not ride quite as low in the water as I'd like. If I build another boat for myself for camping, I'll probably build the regular 16 - still plenty large for most camping, particularly if you use lighter/smaller gear designed for backpacking.
I've only paddled a Pax 20 a few times. A very fast boat, but not one I'd like to do touring in.
