    Think I'll get more mileage here rather than Bush/Float Planes forum, so here goes:
    I got "gifted" with a pair of Red Baron Ultra Floats. These jobbies are 10 feet long, and came with a friend's project that he is moving to a new, better home. They are plastic covered, and may have sat in the sun too long. There are some breaks in the coating, and they appear to have a foam core.
    So any one familiar with? Wonder if I can buy pre-preg f.glass to patch and fly?

    Could you patch them up and use them for molds?

    I think I'll clean `em up first. Then noodle patching. At the price I paid, I can afford to play some.
