    Default Does the frame get wet?

    Curious whether a cub with floats gets wet enough that frame under covering should be checked for rust more often?

    10 year old cub with rust?

    All tube and fabric aircraft should be checked or rust corrosion. Moisture accumulates and more if it lives outside, more still if its on floats. Just do a thorough inspection or find a knowledgeable party to do it. Does it have seaplane drain grommets in the wings, tail and fuselage belly? It should. Thanks Mark
