Anyone have the weight of a stock, 13 rib wing? I figure about 95# complete. How far off am I?

Naw, that's about right. I can pick up a covered wing and set it on horses, what have you. The scary part about "one man movement" isn't the weight, it's "steering it around" without whacking it on something (like the floor, or the header on a "garage door"!) because they are so "unwieldly". I always TRY to procure a "volunteer", but while I try to never be in a hurry around "stuff", I've been known to reposition wings alone. I've always "guestimated them" at just about a hundred pounds (but I never actually weighed one). You're in the Ball Park.

I'll have to weigh some I have in the shop. I have a stock wing and a drooped tip with the extra rib like Stephen has been doing.
