We transported the aircraft to Italy in 2013 and we are now going to reassemble her with a zeroed engine. She will probably fly again in a couple of months. I will send pictures of the assembled aircraft at our seaplane base.

Our first Bee was N6444K which we operated out of Harbor Springs MI until it was destroyed in a hanger fire in 1992. In 1994, we purchased Bob Redners' fine Bee N6283K (#496) and operated it until 2000 I believe. It is now owned by Brigid Blasch and Gus Warren. Also in 2000, we purchased #60 which we are now restoring. This airplane has a new registration number of N124AC. We have more or less stalled out on the restoration and could use some help. We are installing a Continental IO-470P on this aircraft, which came out of a Lane Riviera.

Michael Alman is an AP/IA and recently bought a Sea Bee with the Franklin B8F engine and would like to hear from others who have or had experiance with this engine:

"Dear Steve, thank you for your quick reply to my E-Mail. I will be sending you some photos of the aircraft or what it looked like when I bought it and what changes I am making at the present time. I will also get you the N number and serial number. I do know Richie and he has done some work for me already, he just is not a fan of the B8F engine. When I flew the plane home after I bought it, (about a 100 miles) it ran like a swiss watch, but every add I see in IRSOC has a B9F. I would like to hear from anyone out there that might be flying this great bird with a B8F. My Phone number is (616) 846-3977, E-Mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much. Mike"

My name is John Andrus. I am the step-son Art Holzinger. He is the owner of a Seabee that is in need of restoration. I have not confirmed it by looking at the actual airframe but according to the FAA and Steinar's website it is N6581K Ser#854. It is currently in a barn in Maine. I am currently at Ft Rucker in Alabama but I am retiring this summer from the Army and will be returning to Maine. I hope to begin work in the fall or next spring (2015). The aircraft has not been worked on since the early 80's. I know they were in the middle of an engine conversion and restoring the aircraft when we moved to Maine from New York. I can remember him telling me years ago the conversion was completed but that all the other restoration needed to be done. I can remember bucking rivets in the cabin when I was a kid. I have always wanted to see her fly again. I hope to make it a reality. Do you know of anyone with SeaBee knowledge in the Maine area? There seems to be a few in Western NY. I know that this Bee came from the Niagara Falls or Buffalo area when my father bought it in the 70's.
