hey ben,

i've got an '87 saltare, love it. 6 people and a full tank of gas is about all the weight i need but it will take lots more. the most i loaded mine up with was 4- 600lb sacs (3 around the sides and rear of the engine box and one in the playpen) with a 250 in the back locker. i had a crappy prop at the time and it handled the wight alright, my acme 541 prop would teat that weight up! it works best with most of the weight in the back.

i've done all the work myself, its pretty easy. i've added a tower, from a local company in Austin so i'm not sure about any of the big manufacturer's towers.

my first recomendation would be the prop, Acme 541 3-blade is awesome. email me if you have any particular questions (atew8k@yahoo.com).
