Now is that all Outbacks or was this a special model or something because i haven't seen SUV mentioned here on this site, unless i overlooked it.
The term "SUV" has always been with the Outback -- there is only one model.
Before you commit your money, you should really try a demo with both the Outback and the PA, especially if you plan on standing a lot. I think someone of your size will really notice the difference. The PA is a very easy boat to stand in, runs almost as fast as the Outback and has excellent maneuverability.
I see possible handicaps to the PA are weight and $ for some, but not maneuverability.
