    Vic, if you haven't done so already, check in with Marty57 here. He did wood wings that are works of art. He'd be a good guy for tech reference when you're in head-scratching mode.

    Is it possible to use boat-trailer spring-loaded grease adapters? The ones that you pump up prior to each launch, that push the water away?

    I'm just a run of the mill private pilot, but I know that ultimately PIC has the last word. So yeah, no doubt, declare if it seems needed. ATC can move other traffic.

    Respectfully, a couple points:
    1. The roof truss analogy does not hold. The roof truss is fully triangulated throughout its span. On the Cub, the inner bay, between fuselage and jury struts, is...
