Cessna 182 with Wipline 3000 Floats

Wipline 2100 Line DrawingWhether on hard surface runways, grass strips or your favorite river or lake, the Wipline 3000 float gives you the best of both worlds. A fluted bottom skin with sister keels - or "Speed rails" - assures excellent performance in a wide range of water conditions. The largest baggage hatch in the business is standard in both floats (25 3/4 x 12 inches with 9.5 cubic feet storage space). The aluminum skins and parts are laser cut and rivet holes are pre-punched so that replacement parts are a perfect fit. The main keel has a removable wear strip for ease of maintenance. The latest technology enabled us to build the 3000 float to be both ultra light and still north-country rugged.
