There seem to be no floats manufactured for 103 trikes- under 500 pounds including gas and pilot. Seems like they could be smaller and lighter than existing ones. I am considering fabricating floats primarily for a possible emergency engine out landing along a rocky coast. Being able to take off would be great, but secondary. (I would prefer to not turn turtle and sink instantly). I would be landing at about 25 mph
Can a 40 hp trike with a 15 m wing take off with simple tube floats or are stepped hard shell stepped floats necessary?
