    Finally figured out how to put some pictures up ,sorry for the delay! Doug and crew, see you OSH
     I forward the mathematical way between floats and airplanes and the simple sheet with the 2  main measurements, three being the best to 5 inches for the CG to be ahead of the step, CG ahead  of the step and 3 degrees angle of attack! 
    Highly advise using one drive profit with stainless leading edge, I've cut through cat tails , branch is an about everything elsewith no problems
     I'll so I forward a drawing of the trailer that I've built up if you're interested I can give you more details

     Done this a couple times
     
    Here's what you do , write a  letter to the old avid factory address , certified that you have lost the paperwork  since you bought it, registered mail return receipt. Now when  this comes back nondeliverable, do not open it! In a new envelope send a duplicate letter of the one you sent avid   And the undelivered Obel letter to avid, To the FAA ,  if any problem call me at 252-923-5145, snaps
