Aerocet Model 5850 Straight Floats

5850 The deHavilland Beaver is a classic in it's own right. Paired up with Aerocet 5850 floats, it quickly gains legendary status. Do yourself a favor. Do your Beaver a favor. Fit it with the best. Take a look at the composite construction that defines our floats as the strongest, lightest, and best looking. Our hardware assures you of the strongest fit and easiest installation. Composites Performance * The most useful load in the industry at "up gross."  Ask us to prove it! * New infusion composite construction process allows these larger floats to weigh in at less than smaller floats that have less displacement. * Extra floatation at no extra weight or speed penalty, for increased safety at gross weight. * Very stable, no ventral fin required. * Clean floats and aerodynamic step struts give a cruise speed increase over other designs. * Super large sweet spot, ease of use and the most forgiving floats for novice and pro alike. * Very slippery - minimal sensation of acceleration is felt after leaving the water. * Getting on the step is reached very quickly to get you off the water and into the air fast.   Hull Design * Double fluted design delivers superior strength to weight ratings. * Molded - in boarding steps. * Sharp edges for reduced drag and increased hydrodynamics. * External load tie down mounts. * Large flat deck with molded - in antiskid. * Best design for performance in both rough water and smooth water conditions. Construction * No corrosion. * No rivets mean no rivet leaks. * Common aerospace E-Glass and simple easy - to - use vinyl ester resin. * Non - sandwich bottom skin, makes any field repair an easy process. * High impact sandwich core used on top and sides adds durability and strength.   Compartments   * Six Watertight Compartments * No large holes for rudder controls (causes easy flooding). * Large access panels with integrated preflight pumpouts that use all stainless hardware. * Four large storage lockers with super large access doors, useful for enhanced CG control. * Optional floorboards for flat storage.   Hardware   Key Hardware Features * Stout attach fittings for "up gross" strength. * A mechanics delight for installation, a simple and complete kit. * All fittings swaged to fit. * Extensive use of anticorrosive 300 stainless steel throughout. * Best cabin entry and fueling step layout - looks good, works great.   Hull Protection * Aluminum keel wear strip that is rugged and easily replaced. * Special aluminum chine rub strip designed to resist constant abrasion and provides another seam overlap. Spreader Bar * New extrusion design with internal shear web. * Impervious to crushing under forklift and clamping loads. * Simple, high strength, lightweight spreader bar socket.   Water Rudders/Steering * Simple external rigging. * Utilizes stainless tiller posts
