While LL says the XP is based on the standard Remix and the rocker numbers are very similar, the XP appears to have a flatter bottom front-to-back (unless it's just an optical illusion from the photos). IIRC, LL does say they extended the waterline for the XP, so it probably isn't just an illusion.
XP10 length = 10' 3" plus extended waterline.
Remix 79 = 8' 11"
16" difference in length not counting extended waterline.
(Of course, that's just 1 variable; a bit harder to find photos of the side-to-side bottom shape -- XP does have those two grooves.)
Apart from book learnin' -- it sounded like pilom's observations were based on paddling the boats -- right?
