    How many sq inches are the 2300s?
    The SS2300's are right about 1400 sq.in. with the poly bottom skin.

    That is a big footprint for a Cub. My new straights are about 1300 sq inches.

    Now with my glasses on, our SS2300 ski is about 1360 sq.in. +/- and our LSA size ski is about 1175 sq.in. +/-. Both of these includes the Poly bottom skin.

    I like it Glenn. What year is the truck?

    My wife isn't near as fond of winter as I am but she got a dose of cabin fever yesterday and agreed to her first ski plane flight. It was if she took a pill that gave her an immediate cure.

    There are no planes more fun to fly than a Cub and no Cub more fun than one on skis.

    Unique is the word that comes to mind. Can't be as fun as a Cub though

    It started out about -20 here this morning but warmed up to zero with nothing but sun in the afternoon. I headed to a reservoir west of here and made close to 100 landings out there and laid miles of tracks. No wind and great flying conditions.

    Tonight they're saying -24. Some, like me, like it. Others not so much.

    Default North East fun













    Until FMD showed up it looked like a cub crafters and summit ski commercial.
    Joe sure can cook a mean prime rib. Great to meet VTglenn.

    Next time we will get some more planes. Still have some hangar space.

    I was surprised to see Jim has taken over the smoke show.
