Lycoming 180 hp? Peppier than your last float plane? To stay on topic, me about 25 years ago........

What a cool looking seaplane. I vaguely recall reading something about them a while back.

Re: Share Some Age Progression Pictures

I'm low tech. First you got to take the pics out of the frame, then you got to scan them in your 6 month old printer/copier/scanner for which you never used the scanner function, then you need to download some free imaging software to crop the photos just so, then you need to download a different imaging software because the first one won't save the file properly, then you finally install GIMP which does everything you want it to do, and now you can post old pics online. Skiing yesterday was a bust. Lots of new snow but high winds shut down 15 of 16 lifts.

Well now that you worked it all out for sharing old analog pictures to this fine forum, cough up some age progression pictures that we can see your mug in.

Bob,

You've used that line before. Now that you can scan, cough 'em up. I got a mug only mom could love, but I believe in truth in advertising. You see Bob, when the time comes and I'm cruising again, I hope to cross paths with some of the other single handers of the female gender and compare boats.

Bach also wrote a great little book called "The Reluctent Messiah"(sp?)A story about barnstorming with Jesus,whos plane never needed mantinance, never needed oil and never got dirty..wish I could get away with that...DVC

Re: Share Some Age Progression Pictures

I'm a romantic at heart, and Bach's "Bridge Across Forever" was my favorite of the genre. Back before "Johnathan Livingston Seagull" he was a regular contributor to Air Progress magazine, his articles were funny but still informative on the plane he was reviewing, like the Seabee.
