It's like a fixed gear fixed prop bonazana, I'm 6+ 190lb and I've flown with a 6'2 250lb co pilot and had two 5'11 girls in the back and we all fit fine. It may be slow but it's comfy with its reclining seats and nice headroom. Bigger cabin than a 172 for sure.

Sounds good to me, when would you be free to do a 100hr stretch? Can break it up into however is convenient although I am more than willing to blast through it at once.

Can't offer any concrete dates at the moment but I will keep you and everyone updated. Ideally you'd plan 13 days for 100 hours and try to knock it out in 10 days. That has easily been accomplished before, always aim for at least 8 hours a day but have done 13-14+ hours, depends how bad and how fast you want it.
