The XS hull performed very well as expected in the sharp solent chop, and it was gusting somewhat on saturday afternoon.i am used to the Tornado hulls and unsurprisingly the XS felt just as solid and spot on. the engine is very very eager to get going, typically very smooth and quiet for a modern 4 stroke. More details and pics to follow.
