Wipline Float Rebuild

Unread postby Seatabria » Fri Jan 06, 2017 9:51 am

I am rebuilding a set of wrecked Wipline 2100A floats and would like to find an alternate source of raw materials other than the OEM (who only sells finished components $).

This would be items like aluminum angle for stiffeners, chines, the rounded extruded angle for the Gunwalls, Keel stock, etc.

The generic angle can be obtained from Wicks or Aircraft Spruce, but the other extrusions are not as easy to find.

Also, if anyone has any parts (bulkheads, hatch frames, etc.) available from this type of float, I may be interested.

Any help would be appreciated.

Be careful,I just rebuilt a set of Edo 2790's for our 185 & it would of been waaaay cheaper to just find a decent set to begin with - on the bright side we now own the absolutely best set of 2790's on the planet,but at a great cost.
