How much does the belly tank hold? what sort of weight in the whole unit?

Good to see companies 'warming up' for the season.

That is an interesting new tank design on the B3.

I'd love to see a nice old Puma or better still an EC225 on a fire with a belly tank. You'd get 'twin safety' (government agencies love that stuff), good speed (125-145knots), good 3500-4000 litres of water per drop and the ability to move 18 plus people around and have a winch/rappel capability. I'll go back to dreaming.

A little morbid curiosity perhaps?

Stick with the Jetty, the other is known to have severe stability problems [CoG too high :? ], exorbitant running costs, erratic operating characturistics and no one has been game enough to write a POH for it yet! :D

Nice weather!

Spotted on a recent trip to Martha's Vineyard. Wouldn't be a bad boat combo to have for the odd weekend!
