    Welcome, that was me who told you if you lurk on here long enough we would corrupt you.

    Hey Glenn, sorry this Texas boy is leaving footprints in your Northeast Winter Fun thread, but since we have the same tanning chair I thought I would leave this here.

    Of course it's in the low 80's today, and I'm getting around on a motorcycle instead of a snowmobile, but still.





    Yes, life is good!

    Now that's funny. Summer is so close , I can feel it! I started a annual on a Maule with floats today and have tickets to fly down south and pick up a TwinBee UC-1 in three weeks. I won't be able to land in the water for a while in the TB , not multi sea rated yet.
    Hope I can use it to chase you guys around in the water this year.

    Hey Cool! I've flown that Twin Bee. I was the first person in the world to get a Multi-sea rating in a Twin Bee. I hope that whoever is going to train you knows all of the tricks. Hint; for just one, when taking off in the water lead with the left engine to keep from burying the left float. Do it wrong and the float can get bent.

    You have to wait till I start the Spring and Summer 2018 thread before talking floats. Still winter for 2 more days.
    Went riding with my kid after work. He's got thousands of sled miles but I got a kick watching him working the old 69 Olympic in the deep snow

    Hey Glen, those snowmobiles look a lot like a TwinBee,lol. Stop by if your out flying lots of snow here also.
    It Sn 018, I guess I'm the instructor for the TB. Matt is a excellent pilot and has lots of twin time and seaplane time.

    I used to hang around Flaglor Beach airport when visiting my mom. A guy named Skip had a TB and gave alot of multi engine ratings in it because it was sloooow and gave students time to think

    Glenn

    PS. No multi time yet

    People used to come up to me and ask me how it flew. I’d say “just like it looks”

    Another hint: that aux fuel tank in the tail is for CG control for water work. It should always be full when there is more than one person on board for water work. 1/2 full when solo works best.

    Hint #3: Trail the main fear for a slightly higher cruise speed. Just don't forget to put it up or down as appropriate for landing.
    Hint #4: Lock the tail wheel for all take off and landings. Failure to do so can cause damage to the tail when landing in the water for one reason.
    Hint #5: 1/2 flap for take off gives best 2nd segment climb. Use full flap for shortest distance.

    Be Careful, there aren't many left and there will not be any more! The losses have been due to pilot error.

    Heading out this morning might go visit Ford and see what parts are lying around from that Maine CC, unless they are already strapped on to a rebuild SC project.

    From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be
    found in all corners of the earth."

    Then he made the earth round... and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

    Tom

    That looks to me like a scavenging pack of hyenas showing up to pick the bones clean of my poor carbon cub all alone. I hope you were able to fend them off and keep the door locked. I'm sure mom Ford would come to the rescue, she likes me best. I always get goodies

    on second thought Tom let them have it. I have spent the day with my smoking hot girl on the Grady White, had a couple of cold barley sodas in the Gulf of Mexico riding around with the Maui Jims on and a little bluegrass on the tunes with calm seas. There is just that pesky tornado warning they keep talking about. Keep up the good work Tom I'll have JP come down to help you keep the hooky playing delinquents anyway from the good stuff

    reporting from the Gulf of Mexico

    jim

    ​Tom I really didn't mean to say let them have my cub. Brenda was watching me so I had to make that part up. I really miss my cub and can't wait to come get it next week

    The dar gave his Magic signature and the old parts are already coming off it.

    They are talking of another nor Easter. Enjoy the boat and warm temps. Mark had to rub it in how much heat he gets. I’m still shivering from the flight up here.

    Ok, just talked to Roger at the Saphouse in New Hampshire and they still have about 5" of snow. The weather looks good for tomorrow so 9:30 ish at the farm. For those that haven't been before the hayfield is 2 mile East of Santas ( VT06 ) com 122.75





    Hayfield NS runway



    Going on skis, not sure if wheels will work. Don't land on wheels till you talk to someone on ground. ( I think tires are fine, just don't yell at me if it doesn't work out )

    If landing to the north at Stuart & John's, the best approach is on the west side of the barn, over the Slurry Storage open silo. You can get lower and don't have to worry about the barn roof or wires that are on the east side of the barn.

    If landing to the south it's a nice angled approach towards the road, and roll out / slide out alongside it towards the barn.
