    Would the pilot be required to record that incident or report it to anyone? Would something like that be included in the airframe or engine logbooks?

    How does it pick up an Otter? I didn’t think they had strong enough spreader bars. Or maybe I’m thinking of a Beech 18.

    Surfside Seaplane Base in Lino Lakes, Minnesota used to use a modified pontoon boat trailer. They might still use it.

    It worked well enough to pull my Beaver or PA12 out of the water.

    I suppose straight and level flight preceding CFIT in solid IFR wouldn’t be so bad. You wouldn’t suffer the terror of falling helplessly and your end would be quick.

    But it is horrifying to think...

    Like I said, “Wow.” Keep raising the cost of “new.”

    If they weren’t so costly, no one would consider buying our old restored models for anything close to what they currently bring.

    How do Cubcrafters planes hold up on the resale market?

    Will we little guys ever be able to afford a used one?

    Are they raising the value of original modified SuperCubs or lowering it?

    I insured the first one I built for $110,00 plus $20,000 for the floats through the Seaplane Pilots association. I guess they now just refer you to Avemco or something.

    7 billion mouths to feed and millions of pockets to be lined. Greed, gluttony, and hubris.
