It's a long story but I used/still do own what is left of a J3C 65 with a (90) HP continental. On Edo 1320s No nose tank 2 wing tanks 1/2 full. I was giving neighbor a ride who weighs 370Lbs witch put me a little over weight. I should have him sat in the front seat. Did quite a bit of damage to the fuselage and when the wrecker pulled it out of the lake while I was in the hospital he went and cut the wing spars with a sawzall. So I am looking for a fuselage and wing spars and a few ribs.

Well Crash, your aircraft is configured very close to my C-90 on floats (two wing tanks). My useful load is 358 pounds. I would be reluctant to publicly advertise figures that clearly put the aircraft that much over gross. You never know who may be on line. Opinion Gary

I would think the aircraft was damned near totalled just getting someone that big in and out.

I think a lot of us would be interested in the long story, if you feel like writing.
