    Default Tripacers CG and EWT

    Please share you CG and Empty Weight for your Tripacer. I'm interested in the range of those numbers.

    Sounds like you are about 3 inches farther forward than all the others. Any idea why? Sounds a little out of whack to me unless you have some real heavy stuff up front.

    It's an early one serial 347. The O-320 was added via STC. Perhaps that makes a difference. I've never had reason to compare it with others, so I'm in ignorance.

    Empty weight= 1125.9 lbs @ Empty weight CG= 8.56" 1954 PA22/20 with 290D2. Not sure how much I trust this one, as I weighed it with full tanks. Are they EXACTLY 18 gallons? I want to weigh it dry and see what the difference is.
