Whether 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.
