Performance Composites

  • By far the most technically advanced floats in the history of aviation
  • Proven to be the most useful load in the industry.
  • Infusion composite construction process allows these larger floats to weigh in at less than smaller floats that have less displacement.
  • Extra flotation and no extra weight or speed penalty, for increased safety at gross weight.
  • Clean floats and aerodynamic rigging gives a cruise speed increase over other designs.
  • The most forgiving floats for novice and pro alike.
  • Very slippery – minimal sensation of acceleration is felt after leaving the water.
  • Getting on the step is reached very quickly to get you off the water and into the air fast.

Smart Design

  • Double-fluted design delivers superior strength to weight ratings.
  • Molded-in boarding steps.
  • Sharp edges for reduced drag and increased hydrodynamics.
  • Best design for performance in both rough water and smooth water conditions.

Built to Last

  • No corrosion like with aluminum based floats.
  • No rivets, means no rivet leaks.
  • Common aerospace carbon fiber and simple easy-to-use vinyl ester resin.
  • Non-sandwich bottom skin, makes any field repair an easy process.
  • High impact sandwich core used on top and sides adds durability and strength

Compartments

  • Six Watertight Compartments
  • No large holes for rudder controls (causes easy flooding).
  • Large access panels with integrated preflight pumpouts that use all stainless hardware.
  • Four large storage lockers with super large access doors, useful for enhanced CG control.
  • Optional floorboards for flat storage.

Hardware

  • Stout attach fittings for “up gross” strength
  • A mechanics delight for installation, a simple and complete kit
  • All fittings swaged to fit
  • Extensive use of anticorrosive 300 stainless steel throughout

Hull Protection

  • Aluminum keel wear strip that is rugged and easily replaced.
  • Special aluminum chine rub strip designed to resist constant abrasion and provides another seam overlap.

Spreader Bar

  • New extrusion design with internal shear web.
  • Impervious to crushing under forklift and clamping loads.
  • Simple, high strength, lightweight spreader bar socket with integral grease fittings.

Water Rudders/Steering

  • Simple external rigging
  • Utilizes large stainless tiller posts
  • No rubber seals to crack and leak
  • No deck cables and turnbuckles to trip on
  • Maximum maneuverability with large rudders
  • Very positive steering-effective for rivers and wind
