Looking for first-hand accounts of anyone towing with or towing behind
a Stinson, especially with a 200+ hp Continental or Lycoming.

Tow speeds?
Rates of climb?
Types and weights of gliders pulled?
Anything else interesting or unique?

We fly out of a 1900' MSL mountain field and pull heavy (1000 lb.)
sailplanes.

Thanks,

Michael

They had a couple of Stinsons at Aosta, in the North Italian Alps.

They seemed petty good tugs to me, they would typically take a fully
loaded Poo-cats to 4000 in about ten minutes. Don't know which variety
of engine they had though.
