Hi,

I have a pair of beat up "Ultraflight" floats.
They were mounted on a Lazair, BTW not sure which model.
I have the spreader bars etc.
When the snow melts I can check the dimenstions (the are under my
deck)...
I had hoped to restore them last year but some other serious stuff derailed
the plan.
Maybe this year.
Good luck if you get them.

Those floats were used around Upstate NY with OK results... angle of mounting is key... it matters lots what you yourself weigh.

160 pounds great...

260... forget about it.

I will try and get my spreader bar measurements asap...
maybe today between hockey games.
My "Ultraflight" floats have different mounting points,
i.e aluminum brakest verses indents and hard points.

Otherwise they look very similar.

Craked in same location, but worse.


I may have brought thisup before...
several homebuilders have suggested I fill my floats with foam
(especially at the tips and tails)....

Hi,

I went to my storage area and got measurements...

of course my neighbour just dropped by...


The width of the cross tubes is 60"

the front 90° tab which I presume is used for angle of incidence
is 7" from OD of tube and 5.75" to bolt....

I have no idea what the custom (steel)spreader they made is for and I will
take a pix and send asap. (no idea how they go since it was over
five years ago).

That 60" (5') may have been on narrower series II,
so my wheels may not mount.
I am planning on mounting it direct antway.
