Spot on Alan,

We did everything you mentioned and the 1/32" thick   1/2" washer that you
suggested really sorted things out.

Leon really respects you as a "flight guru" and made the comment today that
he cannot understand why you spend so much time with those on the Reflector
(he does not have a lot of respect for many of those using it and thinks
most have a death wish). They spent some time aloft in the XL today just
before gale force winds hit. Everything is going splendidly except withthe
gear doors off they are nearly frezing to death. Retract worked like a
charm today so retract doors go on next trip.
