WARNING!! Scammers are out there!
Below is a REAL scam that happened to one of our members. Please be careful and insist on authentic checks and have them checked by your local bank. An attorney wouldn't be a bad idea either. We can only hope that the scammers get caught and prosecuted...
"I would like to warn the other club members that a number of scammers monitor this newsletter. I have had two offers that were complete scams. It works like this. I get a call and an offer. The buyer then says he will send a deposit in the form of a cashiers check. When the deposit comes the check is for $3000 more than requested. I then get a call that the buyer is leaving for a foreign country for a couple months and has found an inspector to come and check out the aircraft. The inspector will call me from Los Angeles and will need the $3000 for expenses. Please cash the check and send him the money when requested. I took the check to my local bank and they sent it to their fraud department. It was a great looking check and I was told that they would have deposited it in my account and that I would have been able to draw on it had I not requested a fraud check. They also said that if it bounced the money would be withdrawn from my account. It was, of course, a counterfit check."
Pre-Buy Inspection
Get a pre-buy inspection done! Download a pre-buy checklist here. I'm sure this list needs "tweaking" so let me know what additions to make and I'll add them to the list. Also get a title search done before you buy. AOPA and the SPA (Seaplane Pilot's Association) can help you with that.

"Should I buy a Seabee?" is a list of FAQ's by potential Seabee purchasers. I'm sure there are more questions so I will add to the list as they come in.

   We have had inquiries, from time to time, as to what a prospective Seabee buyer should look for, to insure they would get a sound airframe and engine. To be able to offer an answer to this question, I asked several members which included old time Seabee pilots and at least two A/P mechanics to advise me. After due consideration, it occurred to me that Donn Booth's observation that "a buyer must remember that Seabees are all around 50 years old. Some have been used in corrosive salt sea water that, over a period, tends to render them unseaworthy". Some have been left unhangared and ravaged by the elements. Others have been damaged and poorly repaired. Engines may have been operated beyond normal limits for long periods of time. Donn's conclusion? Avail yourself of the best airframe and powerplant (A/P) mechanic you can find and authorize him to inspect the aircraft and advise you in this most difficult decision."You can also require the Seller to guarantee those items which come into question". I heartily recommend you accept Donn's advice.

IF YOU BUY OR SELL, PLEASE NOTIFY US!  We encourage you to contact and deal directly with the seller. Thank You! Steve for the IRSOC. Not responsible for ad accuracy.

 N6222K   S/N 425

----- SOLD! -----

Republic RC-3 1947. TT235 47hrs since restoration.

There aren’t many Seabees that have been restored and maintained to this level and far fewer are offered for sale. N6222K is one. Completed in late 2010 by Avian in Bremerton WA, it has been flown only 47hrs since then. Speaking from experience, there is no way one can one can buy a Seabee and restore it for this price. My loss is your gain. This Seabee has undergone a top to bottom, inside and out restoration. All surfaces have stripped, cleaned and painted. The bottom was removed, the wings dismantled and all control surfaces opened. Then the modifications began: IGO480 with a Simuflight conversion and Hartzell reversible Prop, extended wings, Cleveland brakes, auxiliary electric hydraulics, Southwind heater, Whelen Nav/Strobes, landing lights and many more. Virtually everything on this plane is new or like new.

Engine: Lycoming IGO 480 G2B6, Hartzell 3 blade reversible Prop new at restoration, Simuflight STC
Airframe: Cleveland brakes, Extended wings, Drooped tips, Auxiliary electric hydraulics, Southwind cabin heater, Landing light, Whelen Nav/Strobes lights, Flush fuel filler,180 degree doors, Bilge pump with multi compartment selector, Completely stripped cleaned and painted inside and out on literally all surfaces. No corrosion. All new hydraulics. All new control cables.
Avionics: All new at time of restoration. Terra Nav/Com, Terra intercom marker beacon, Electronic International, Bendix Transponder, All new wiring.
Interior: Beech Musketeer seats, Leather / Fabric interior, Headliner & carpet, Cabin lights.

Hangared at Crest Airport, Kent WA

Dear Seabee Club

We have our Seabee for sale on the club website.  We’re having trouble selling it and are considering parting it out, we need the room in our hangar. I have sent a few more pictures in hopes that they will create some interest.  I couldn’t send them all in the same email so I sent them one at a time.

Galen Tustison
N60CB   S/N 663
----- SOLD! -----
Offered for sale again!
I am selling Serial #663, N60CB, for the owner in California. You may have known the owner, Gaylin Tustison. This is the airplane which was covered in a story on your website when the owner purchased the airplane in New York 3-years ago and flew it out to his ranch in California. After his arrival in California, a wild-fire burned through the ranch, destroying his home, hanger and airplanes. The only aircraft to survive the fire was the Seabee, however all logbooks were lost in the fire. Based on the times we have tried to reconstruct from the previous sale, it has 2,070 TT, and approx. 200 SMOH. The prop condition was documented in the story on your website, and it appears that it was overhauled when he bought the airplane.

Mr. Tustison has since passed away, and as a friend of the family, they are directing all inquiries through me. The aircraft must be hauled out by truck, as the ranch runway is too short to fly out of.

Price Reduced!: $22,000.00    $18,000.00 USD.
