    RE: Too short ?

    Yeap, I'd say those are way to short. You want to shoot for the 27" range 75% of fuse length is the target length for a conventional twin float set up,, you can be + or - a inch or so, but 5" short is asking for trouble

    good luck
    You're so smart,, you figured out how to read this!! Or maybe ya just got lucky??

    I've made several sets of floats for the T-Craft and all were 24". Check my photo gallery at planefunfloats.com , lower left corner.
