sport tube modI had dinner the other night with my buddy, proud owner of a "new" Tiger, and we touched on this carrying skis thing.
He had just done a ferry hop to get a Husky (Aviat not the Fairchild), in for annual so the topic drifted in and out but ....
He did remember seeing an approved mod that sounded like a sport tube that allowed long items like skis and fishing rods to be carried in/towards the tail and keep things clear of the minor details .... like the cables and turnbuckles and like. The bad news .... he couldn't remember which plane he saw this on.
Fishing rods are probably "no factor" .... but skis ... weight and balance would have to be considered (IMHO), a significant factor.
Probably someting the "bush set" would be familiar with.
Happy hunting .... remember ... the hunt is half the fun! Sounds like a Husky could be added to the list since you can add floats for water skiing!
