    I have a slight romantic notion of buying a plywood bilge keeler like my dad's, just the RM1070 fast version!! My dad always disapproved of "plastic" boats!
    Some time ago I spoke to an owner of a 10:50. He loved it but said that they did not sail well downwind.

    Surprised by that as downwind was where my RM was at it's best, very stable and could just about plane.

    Arrival of triplets! Now have a Jeanneau Sun2000 for occasional S/H sailing and small Mobo for the family - beach trips to the IoW are the typical itinerary these days. Miss the RM and probably can't afford to replace, unfortunately.

    At last Paris boat show, I took a number of pictures of the 10.70 for a friend, if you want to have a look you may find them at this link:

    almost as much as hideous hull windows and twin wheels.

    oh, and square edged designer yacht interiors.

    Well, the OP is due to get his RM next year. It would be interesting to hear if his ideas have changed.

    One for sale here:

    Still not cheap.
