2 Stroke Oil for Zapcat Tohatsu 50

I am currently using Seadoo XP-S Oil Fully Synthetic, this is what the previous owner has used since day one.

Its 49.99 a gallon so not cheap. I feel this oil might be a bit of an over kill! for the job at hand.

Should I move to a Semi-Synthetic?

And if so any recommendations on a good 2 stroke oil?

Although I am sure there are many on here qualified to ask, you may be better posting that kind of question on boatmad.com, as they have many racer's using 2 stroke engine's

Rock oil TCW3 we found to be by far the best.

That's what I use - great stuff and so similar to Mercury Quicksilver premium stuff I am almost certain they are the same - bit of a price difference though!!!
