Default New Build...Need Help

I have recently aquired an OS FX 160 and interested in using it for my next build. Since I have never owned anything bigger than a .52, my question is what size flatty would be recommended for an engine this size?

My idea is a traditional drop deck flatty in pusher config. Im thinking something stable but also capeable of decent speeds.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So many options! 

I also run a 52.  My hull is 40x20 body board, and is fast enough for sure.  I've no idea how large you could go with a 160.... 60 inches ?
