The final 3rd weighing was done after the annual inspection and the new official weight is 948lbs. Flew out to Portland ME, drove up to Laconia NH and the little coupe is finally mine and out of her hangar after 4 years sitting idle. An Ercoupe experienced pilot tested it and positioned it at KLCI for me. Spent my 66th birthday flying my Ercoupe, getting familiar and setup to my liking. First PIC flights since 1997.
Departed KLCI and spent 7/18 to 7/20 flying 966sm back to northern Michigan She never skipped at beat and now the real fun begins. Thanks to all those that answered my question here.

After guys leveled the ercoupe on the scales, 2nd weighing came in at 954#. These darn coupes gain weight just looking at them. Time to get the NUTRISYSTEM STC for the pilot.

Well, haven't picked up my coupe yet, but friend and A&P did weigh it with new battery and engine oil, no fuel and they came up with 936#. Seems kind of chunky to me for a plain jane 1946 415c. Guess it is up to me to shed the extra weight. Just keep thinking, every 6lbs is another gallon of gas. They are doing the gross weight increase STC this week. Still LSA. Come on FAA, pass the MOSAIC thing next year and get that LSA weight up to 3300 lbs. One can hope

993 on my 415G, but that was before I removed some dead electronics and very detailed cleaning of the inside of the fuselage.
