Tom, Gary Goldsbury has a Brantly 2141U that was on floats at one time, N5951x was on floats but has been exported to China & was owned by Brantly Inc. Also there is a picture of a 305 on floats with Roy Orr as pilot & Herold J. as a passenger on the net. On Aptil 30th 2003 the Brantly factory was advertising to purchase old floats to reproduce & put back into production. Bill
