Twin rudders a must, I have been thinking a lot about single or twin keels, but single keel will save weight which seems cruicial for these boats so I guess I will go for single keel.

The only niggle in my mind is how the RM really sails. Looking at the specs it should be a rocket, but I can not find so much feed back from others than the above mentioned test which seems pretty much focused on crusing among the island around La Rochelle. For the Pogo you can find beatuful sequenses at high speed on You Tube, is this possible with the RM or the Opium, which is the closest contender, I keep asking myself. opium is also appr. €50 000 more expensive but has doors and wheels.

Probably I should go for a Pogo 10.50 or 12.50 but 2-3 years waiting is not accetable.
