    Hey George - it is a beautiful aircraft, but we have discovered the joy of a Skywagon on amphibs. There is some pleasure in putting the plane way after a day of flying and not have wet feet. There is one correction on the ad copy - the panel has a GTN650 (not a 750).

    How does that thing do with a 160hp engine? They're no ball of fire on wheels with 160hp...I can't imagine they'd do much better on floats. Nice looking aircraft though! I'm sort of looking for a 172 to teach some family members to fly while I build a Super Chub, and I haven't flown floats in 30 years. But that looks like a fun aircraft.

    Haven’t flown this one, but my grandfather had a tired 150 on 2130’s and it was a dog. Later he had a 160 with an 80” seaplane prop and it was night and day difference and did much better

    I flew in a 180hp C-172 once on floats, some years ago. I didn't fly it though--but it did OK. It was no C-180, but it did fine. But I'd think that the 160hp engine would make it a relative doggy performing on floats. I'd like to fly one though, just to see what they're like.

    I've had quite a bit of experience with C172's, and this one is the best performer by far (even with the 160 hp). The Sportsman STOL does what it is supposed to do, and you are off both the water and land in very short order. It's on Edo 2000 floats and it's performance is nothing short of stellar -okay - not a Cub on floats but quick off the water none the less. This same aircraft was at the WAD in 2018 and kept up with all the others. I can ramble on forever, but the best test is to come to SLK and take her for a ride. The only reason 543 is up for sale is because we now have a beautiful C185 Amphib and too many aircraft in the hangar.

    Looks like a beautiful aircraft, to be sure. I'm looking for a 172 myself, for teaching my daughter and son-in-law to fly while I'm building something. But yours is a little above my budget, mainly (I'm sure) due to the floats. I would LOVE to fly floats again, but have absolutely nowhere to base an aircraft on straight floats. But the airframe time is attractive, as is the panel of course.

    I've been around for quite a while and I have yet to see anything come in on budget. Keep in mind this is a factory seaplane and it shows. The panel upgrade took time but was well worth it - you would be very close to having an IFR platform. I believe we are the third owners and I recall being told the original owner only put the wheel gear on once. It's been flown but not beat up. If your training produces a daughter/son in law team that wants to continue flying, you can sell them the aircraft they learned in - plus you'll have something nice to play with while you're building your cub. Come on up and take a flight!
