    Useful load is around 1150-1200#. Deduct the pilot and fuel load from that. The payload for a long flight is less than on a short one. Figure a 200# pilot w/ personal gear and 4 hours fuel, the payload will be around 550-600#.

    And which set of floats are mounted on the plane and any other mods that have been done to it. An IFR decked out panel weighs much more than you would think it does.....
