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 They also said that if it bounced the money would be withdrawn from my account.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.

Available mechanics for the "Pre-buy" inspection:

Mike Raab (A&P, IA, Private Pilot, located in the northeast U.S. but travels anywhere) -

Jason Gruener (A&P, soon to be IA), much Seabee experience, located at Hilton Head, SC - (843) 694-4010 cell,

4 Seabee Project(s) for sale


   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 ME!  We encourage you to contact and deal directly with the seller. Thank You! Steve for the IRSOC. Not responsible for ad accuracy.

Seabee Projects FOR SALE (4) 

Ray Lynot

Was N6393K S/N 631

Up for sale is my Seabee project.  I've owned the aircraft for a decade and have yet to start the restoration.  It was my intention to install a Robison V-8 Conversion, however, due to a divorce and the resulting financial realities, this project will sit even longer.  That seems unconscionable to me; so, I hope this exceptional aircraft’s new owner will restore it quickly, and get her back in the air where she belongs.  This aircraft has no corrosion and is in very good dismantled condition. The logbooks are through 1985. This Seabee had an TIO-540 installed in the 90's and apparently flew several flights with that configuration, when the owner passed of natural causes.  His daughter decided to sell the engine/instrumentation and that is what is missing to date: i.e. a compete aircraft minus the engine/instruments. This is an excellent candidate for the Robinson conversion. The aircraft is located in my hanger in Sanger, California and will be sold with the wing stands and fuselage cradle.  If you have any questions please feel free to call. 
Askinng $33,000

----- 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.
