i5wo,

I have no experience with the iS 150 so I can't say for sure that it will equal the performance of the 147. I had a F147 too before the F160 that I now have and I liked the board(s) a lot.

With that said, I think the 147 will still plane a little earlier than the 150 because of its width in the tail in 7-10 knots (+ or - one knot difference??). Once on plane, the 150 has the potential to go a little faster, jibe better, but won't go upwind or deep downwind as well.
