The 29erX will probably be a nice enough boat to sail and will probably be quite popular. I would worry about the longevity of the hulls if they do what has been suggested and put the bigger rig on the existing 29er hulls.

There is a good chance that it will be quicker than a cherub for the same reason that the 49 is quicker that the 14 it is a lot longer.

Any development boat is going to need tweeking every so often and the RMW boat will be no different. Obviously my new boat from dlboats will never require any repairs or modifications :-)

If it doesn't break it's too heavy; if it does it wasn't built right

Not down wind its not! & on 97 rules, in twin wire conditions I could pace an RS800 upwind, and blitz it down! Now with new rules - I bet that a cherub could blitz a 49er off the wind! & be honest - is this not the most enjoyable tack to sail?

i dont think that you could blitz a 49er down wind!!  the 49er has loads more sail area than a cherub!!

Aye but I'm talking about racing around a course. Unfortunately downwind is only 1 bit of the story.

Saw Cherubs getting gubbed round the course by 29ers in light and strong winds so lets not kid ourselves eh!

As for 800's there is no way a Cherub will be near an 800 round the course. It will be murdered upwind!
