    I always liked the x648 and x646 for the redhead.
    The 1815 would probably be really good for that combo, or a good old 1450 runs well on a hornet.

    The Hornet is a great round track boat for the 7.5cc class. Its deck is of the old style that was popular in the 90's (somewhat flat) so it will require a fair amount of nose weight to get it to handle the new (NR46) power available in that class. I am talking about 10+ inches of C/G. Trim it on mildly choppy water and you will do well.

    1450 back cut, and cupped till it loads the motor. Likely around 3.2
