Keith,

Sorry it took me so long. Middletown keeps us busy and am finally able to catch up a bit.

Here are the photos of your beautiful Champ. Is it still in Hawaii or where?

Thank you Joe for posting them. I keep it at my place near Itasca State Park in Northern Minnesota. I have a 1000' strip on my 120 acres there with a hanger and currently building a log house for when the wife retires from the Army. (21+ years so far). When it is on floats I dock it a few miles south on Island Lake (12 miles north of Park Rapids, MN) at my dad's place.

Yes sir...LSA eligible. :) The paperwork says 891 EW on wheels and....crap I forgot what it is on floats but I have more useful load on floats than I do on wheels. Not much but 10-20 lbs if I remember correctly. It flies with whatever fits through the door. :)

O-235, VG's, droop tips, 39 gallons of fuel....I have no complaints.

Is it for sale??? Hmmm, maybe. I have been looking at Super Cubs but haven't decided if I want to take the plunge. I may also let my medical expire and if I do I may just keep it.

I probably could not afford it. I have no need for floats, etc. It sure is a nice airplane. JC

Keith - Is that N2567E ? I will order the CD tonight. I know that PK1500s have been approved on other Champs, so I am not too concerned about that. - I wil give you a call tomorrow or Monday.

Speaking of floats, just heard from a good friend that he is selling his entire float setup for a Sedan. Just does not need to fly on the water anymore.

This could include a like new 80" prop for float use and the floats and everything required to use them.

Anyone interested, please let me know.
