I am looking for a tail ski. Anyone have one out there they aren't using? The snow is a little deep and powdery this year and I was told it might be a good idea to install one when I get the skis put on.
Thanks,
Keith

Keith, Let me know if this one does not work out for you. I am in the market also.

Thanks

Larry,
I got ahold of him and he isn't actively trying to sell it. I am going to see what it may be worth. His suggestion is to just make one using a small shovel (PMA approved of course) and cutting a slot for the tailwheel. I have seen this done on several planes.

Thanks John,

It just does not look like it would hold up to the abuse that would be put on it in a full stall landing on hard packed snow.
It looks good though.

Trick air has one that will handle a lot of powder. It has to go on a Scott 3200 though.
