    All of our DOI (Fed Gov) CC-18s are on the Wiplines. They work great. I'm sure the Aerocets will also be great, but have not run them on the cubs. Good luck.

    If he has an airplane that works, it would probably be better to just get some big tires and a Landis Fork and maximize what he has.

    Had a guy ask me last month what tires I recommended for him after he got his Sedan rebuilt and back in the air since he was interested in flying it to Alaska and doing Alaska-ey things with it.

    Most float accidents total all the panel equipment. That alone is a monstrous expense, so I have assumed that to be the reason for float insurance rates to be so high.

    Just to be clear...you don't have to be particularly nose-high for the shove to be important. Any standard climb attitude when close to the ground puts you at risk of serious airspeed decay when the...

    What he said.

    I just flew a cub with the 56 pitch Sensenich. It hits around 100 mph on floats for cruise with 2300 rpm.
