Has anybody measured the height with the floats?

Per Robert at Lockwood, the top of the vertical stabilizer is at 156" on amphibious floats. I assume it varies slightly depending on which brand of floats. On the Clamars at least, you can add some small wheels to the stern of the floats. Then you tip the airplane back on the wheels and lose some more height. Maybe someone else can supply that height but I was told at OSH that when tipped backwards it's no problem to get through a 12' door. The new Lockwood cockpit enclosure has a taller tip on the vertical stabilizer which will add another couple of inches.
