Default Large Rio & Free Formula 198

I'm still sailing my Free Formula 198 and doing well on it in 10 - 20 knots. About the only problem I have is when I use it on light wind days with a 5.5 or 6.5 and work on old school free style. It's plenty stable but I cannot stay upwind in light air with a small sail on it.

I've been reading about the Rios and the Large is about the same size as my Free Formula but with a daggerboard. How do these 2 boards compare for stability both in light wind and when planing. I use my 5.5, 6.5, 8.0 and 10.0 Retros on the FF. Would the 10.0 work on the Rio too?

I would likely replace my FF with the Rio if I got it cause we don't have lots of storage space.
