Hi Peter, yes I'm still going with the C-85, I hope it turns out well. I trimmed as much off as possible on weight and was about 207lb dry before I mounted the engine.

give me a call if you have questions, David 360-670-9725 Pacific time

I am having to repair the float attachments before proceding with further tweaking of the engine installation so I don't have additional information right now.

Hi Peter,  Thanks for the friend request.    Do you already have the engine??   if not I would consider the UL power engine.   The continental is a good engine but about 35 lbs. too heavy, burns a lot of fuel. I have 4 tanks so I could have a decent range.  Currently trying to solve cooling problems.  On the positive side  I like the dependability of the Continental and also the cost, with new cylinders and a complete overhaul the engine is about half of the Rotax.  Also the build was more difficult and time consuming .Hope this helps.
