if you're 225, I wouldn't recommend a compass.
Maybe consider an outback or PA for yourself and a compass for the wife.
I did the same thing - I have a PA and wife has a compass.
I fish by myself a lot, she goes when the weather is good and stuff - my justification was that if I had a PA then I'd haul all the gear and she could just put a small cooler on hers. She loved the idea of not having a bunch of stuff to haul. I loved the idea of having the larger PA.
