    Floats for PA18-95

    Just dreaming at this stage but would love to put my supercub on floats( used of course haha). It’s a pa18-95 ....90 hp continental without flaps. Was wondering if anyone would have float recommendations .

    Aqua 1500 would work just fine and they come up for sale sometimes. Same rigging as a J3-Pa11- Pa18-95. Flat tops and a huge compartment in each float and they perform well

    Have an old friend that had a "95" Cub on PK 1800's that were Field Aproval only in late 1960' s
    It worked fantastic. Think he ran 75x38 prop on it. Have seen them on Edo 1650's some in Alaska but again likely F/A . Only legal Edos were 1400's from memory......... They are pretty small if there is much
    wind. Been lots of them upset on 1400s if its blowing and the Cub is loaded heavily........the new Carbon
    Fiber floats that PK is building are great ! The are 1750s and very lightweight. Handle almost identical to
    the old Edo 1320s. Same fluted bottoms. Click image for larger version.

    I have Baumann 1500s. They are hard to beat....and hard to find. There are sometimes a set listed on Barnstormers. Floatation is 1536 per float....adequate for 1500lb gross 18-95
