    The belief is that felt soles promote the spread of invasive species. I miss my felts but rubber wading boot soles have gotten much better in the past few years. http://knowledgecenter.csg.org/kc/co...read-invasives

But I question the numbers, So I am not sure why just yet. Maybe the rigging. She was wrecked and rebuilt. Plus I need to tweak the float rigging a bit more.
    My point was that it is not a ballerina of the skies compared to my old PA11 or my old ag model PA18. I wont be making one-float step-turns while skimming the glassy water with a wing-tip like you could in the 11.
    But then again my old PA-11, 12 and 18 could not get out to Caribou lake in 15 minutes or Lake Hood in an hour.
    Late model 180s are a delight to fly. One float step turns aren’t a problem. You just need to get used to it. Go spend a couple of hours with a few sand bags and get aquainted with the trim at different CGs. Or fight it and complain.

    Picked up a pair of Frogg Toggs today. They seem very comfortable, light weight and will serve my purpose nicely. Only $35, I had been expecting to pay much more.

    I was trying to find an alternative to hauling around wet, heavy wading boots I've been using in conjunction with neoprene stocking foot waders. Bought some Croc's sandals a size and a half bigger than my normal shoe.
    decent traction and support, weigh next to nothing. Got my chest wading ensemble down to about 3 1/2 lbs.
    Wouldnt go stomping thru a briar patch with them, but , so far so good..
