So after a few near misses we’ve got ourselves a 6m XS with a 150hp optimax and managed to get a few hours today getting acquainted with it.
First impression is it jumps up onto the plane in no time and has a decent turn of speed. Managed 40 knots at 5500rpm with 3 adults and around 140litres of fuel onboard, does this sound about right? Think it has a lazer 2 stainless prop 19P.
Played around with smartcraft gauges and saw a best of 0.8l/nm at around 4800rpm around 35knots?
Looking forward to my next outing and learning a bit more about the new toy.
