    The 339s are only 80 pound more than a set of straight 2000s. That's not a bad compromise for a larger set of amphibs. I can't help you on the price. I do know they were removed from the plane nearly...

    Paul, I believe that you are confusing the 339-JHS floats with the 2700 electric actuated amphibs. Those were a maintenance nightmare, many of which were converted to hydraulic by Ben Wiplinger. JJ...
