Default slipstream beaver

anyone have one on floats. i picked up a kit a few weeks ago. looks like an easy switch to floats, I have a dle 20, but might not be enough on floats.

BoB Kline and I are adapting floats to this beaver as we speak. we have had a special rear mount built form TNT. there is a hardwood block for mounting in the back. we will be using DLE 35 rear exhaust. 46 inch plane fun floats (foam sheeted). We found them from a guy out west for $200 shipped. I bought 3 bob has two.
