    To be honest, when we replaced the struts on Rick's Cub in '97, I think they were wood too.
    Both his and my Cub now have the big 2 piece nylon fairleads where the small ones were. Just

    I've flown a Cub with about every type of footwear. For years, I wore Cowboy boots almost all

    I wear a 9....
