200 lbs...I think...gross weight goes from 3200 down to 3000...been 15 years since I did the float thingy...did a lot of sediment sampling back in the late 80's and early 90's...had all the fuel/passenger loading for times and distance...might still have it somewhere :P

well you might get lucky and the engineers may have done a W&B amendment with floats on , but 200 lbs does sound close since your gross goes to 3000lbs

remember to adjust your pressure in floats through out the day , its normal to put it up in the morning and let out in the afternoon . vne and starts watch for the spin till t/r is up to speed . dont push the limits on the hovering still attached to the water , the toes of the floats could dig in and you could have a bad day . oopppps

 

other than that have fun , bags are tons of fun !!!!!!!!!!!!

Kit # 206-706-008-13 adds 108.4 LBS @ 129" and kit # 206-706-008-11 adds 175.5 LBS @ 119.6" as per service instruction 206-26.

 

A visual difference between the 2 installations are caps on the longitudinal tubes - the -11 kit has domed/rounded caps and the -13 has flat/flush caps.

In the process and less the wieght of the AI High gear the increasse in wieght is 78lbs.+- Some of the clamps the older ones can wiegh a few ounces more each.

 

The decrease in Gross does go to 3000 due to the strenght of the cross tube and bags. External no change.
