Thanks for the advice.  I'll weigh the plane and go from there.

 Weigh the plane with the skis on, make a weight and balance sheet for that configuration and out that in you'r flight manual..

Here is my w&b with Federal 3600 fix pen wheel skis and an Alaskan fix pen tail ski. I have 1985 gear and 850x6 tires.

Hello All, I'm new to the 180 world and to the club.  I've searched around for weeks and can't find an answer, so I'm hoping you folks can help out.  I have Federal A3500's on my 180.  I can't find an STC or anything online about the weight and arm for the skis.  Does anyone know the answer off the top of their head or even better, have documentation on them?  Thanks,  Casey from Alaska

Casey,

The easiest solution in my mind would be to weigh it with the skis installed.  Shouldn’t cost more than 1-2 hours of shop labor.
