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.
Kind regards.

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 boatflyer@hotmail.com.  Thank you so much.  Mike"

UPDATE! with photos below...

"Hi Steve,
Here are some pictures of the Seabee project that I've been working on. It may seem like I have a lot of work to do yet but it's just putting back the interior and cowling up the engine, and, oh yes, tons of paperwork. Thanks again for your help and I will keep in touch. Feel free to use any of these pcitures for the club...

Mike"

Recently Glen flew his Seabee for the first time after restoration. Congratulations! It is now going to be taken apart and have the 'Robinson' conversion done along with some other interior changes. Way to go Glen!

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.
