    Oops

    It never pay's to be in a hurry. I have installed these skis a hundred times or more and can go from wheels to skis in under 15 min. But this year with little snow around here i must be out of practice. I tightened the axel nut and cottor pin and went to grab the bungee on the front of the ski and WTF, then I started to laugh at my doppy workmanship

    I've been on wheels all winter, finally put skis on yesterday. Bunch more snow, went to fly this afternoon and have too much snow on the runway now. This week should provide just enough melt for flying next weekend.

    Had a guy here during the seminar put a different key in his ground adjustable Sensenich prop. Seems he didn't get it in correctly and it went backwards. Had the same thing happen on a P51 when the prop dome slipped when we went from the work stand to the prop. Pretty weird when the wind goes forward.

    Wow, I knew cubs were slow. Yours must be really slow if you put the skis on like that.
