This just in!
ATTENTION: After months of back-and-forth we finally have an answer to the Beta Valve Spring issue! I called Hartzell and they set me straight. See the article on the "Safety Tips" page here. Thanks to Bruce Hinds for bringing this critical issue to our attention! The springs are available from Hartzell or Simuflight.
Mr. Charles Bain is writing a book and needs stories! If you have an interesting story about your Seabee adventures, send them to Mr. Bain. His email is email@example.com. He says you guys can remain anonymous!! (and for good reason) You can even use a fake name. Here is the list of questions from Mr. Bain.
"...it's all about highlighting the range of experiences this craft has accumulated over the decades."
Finally!! Real seals for our wheels. Parker has a replacement for our dated felt bearing seals. Read the article here. Thanks again to member Bruce Hinds for all the information.
NOTE: Make SURE your wheels are the ones listed on the data sheet.
Member Dave Reeve is selling some great seaplane books!
See them here.
If you get an email from firstname.lastname@example.org it's BOGUS!! Offers have been made on parts to more than one member but they refuse to forward their location and they want bank account information.
Don't answer emails from them.
(It just happened again on 10-31-2016!)
Member Mark Dimmock has done it! The restoration of CF-DLX is complete. It looks terrific!
