Modern swoop type scheme three colors on white. Accents are Maroon, red and gold. Looks good from a distance but has a lot of localized areas where the paint is peeling off and the clearcoat is failing. (See photos) Shiny clean metal underneath. Overall rated 5 out of 10.


Good side panels and carpet in matching burgundy. Cream leather seats with some fading and wear. Good headliner. Seats let it down a bit so overall rated at 7 out of 10.

Minnesota first, then locally owned here at Placerville for the last 15 years. It was used to commute from the valley inland from San Francisco on the rivers where it lived on a lift out of the water. It came up to Placerville so that the owner could work at his winery several days a week. Placerville is at 2550 feet and on a hot summer day this plane has excellent performance here. Complete logs. Various minor float related bums and digs have been repaired over the years and it is currently very straight and in good condition. No hail., LLC
