We’ve been hard at work putting together a smaller version of the LSX designed around the F15 racing class. Like the previous craft, it uses a modular foam construction technique, but has a smaller 10.75′ x 5.25′ footprint. The driver will sit in a kneeling position to further lower the CG of the craft. As shown here, the base hull weighs about 40 lbs so far, and has almost 1000 lbs of flotation. The propulsion system is a 13 HP engine with a 2.25:1 belt reduction driving a 36″ Multiwing fan, which should be very smooth and quiet. Stay tuned for updates!
