    I'm curious about what looks like external stringers on the bottom of the boot cowl on this C170.
    Great pics BTW.

    Got my first-ever ski flight in today. Did a few laps at the airport, then went out to play. Didn't really need skis since there was basically zero snow, but it still was ridiculously fun! Have a lot to learn and deeper snow will certainly be a different game, but I sure am excited about the potential for new adventures!

    It's evolving into the Piper Cherokee with the belly stringers it saw once. Probably not but maybe there's a valid reason.

    Good question, and I don't have a good answer. Stiffener there for some reason, they were there when I bought the plane. I hadn't really thought much about them, but recently I have had several 170 and 180 guys ask about them. I will do a little more research.

    Are they in the same rivet line as the tunnel above. Maybe the thin skin rivet holes are wallowed out and that was a way to fix it.

    Great looking 170 BTW. Looks like a 52 model?

    Pick your landing spots carefully (overflow) you don't want to be late for dinner! Have fun!
