"I now have a Cessna 180 which I switch from wheels to floats in the summer and back in winter. How easy is it to switch a Comp Air 6 or 7 from wheels to floats? Can you install eyebolts on top of the wing for lifting? How easy is it to remove the gear?"
Yes -- to all of the above. Once the floats have been assembled and installed initially, it only takes a few hours to reconfigure between land or float, assuming the landplane is a taildragger. On tailwheel installations, we retain the main landing gear, using it for the forward float support struts. Just unbolt the wheels and bolt on the floats! The rear struts mount externally to the bottom of the fuselage, and can simply be unbolted for removal. When removing the floats, drag struts may be left attached to the floats and the spreader bars between the floats can also be left in place (unless storage space is an issue). Yes, eyebolts may be installed on the cabin spar carrythroughs for hoisting.
