Re: match a plane to my floats, please...followup
Thanks, John, and to the others who responded. I've just placed an
order for the Unionville Beaver. The length wasn't noted on the
website for Great Hobbies, but a call to their tech line had Gary
pulling the plans and indicating that the length is 43"...exactly the
length that will fit my floats. Hot damn, I've got another project to
help fill the building season!
