    There would be just one problem with what you propose. To heavy to stay Ultralight class. It is that simple I have never had an interest in building LSA class. I will persevere in the UL. I have been there with this plane I am going backwards now to the best configuration I had and then I will re-manufacture the the hull and rear floats. I can take some of the advise into a new hull but it will have to stay the same area and still use rear floats in the tricycle config producing lateral stability at the same time.

    The rear floats Are not the problem and never have been. Viewer and reader perception will be modified soon. One more test !
    Please read my post 86 most important to my evident view point.

    I agree about staying in the UL Class.

    Paul's flat surface and double step do not need to add weight, perhaps. You might like to see his latest designs. Let me know if you are interested in more discussions.
