    Do a search on pre-buy and pre-purchase inspections. Steve Pierce was kind enough to even include a list of things to look for at one time that was very helpful.

    Bottom line, get a mechanic of good standing to go over the plane and logs prior to buying. It can be very expensive to correct stuff people either did wrong, did not document correctly, or forgot to log.

    Performance? Well, if loaded to where the rear spreader is sunk, and a hot day with now wind you might have trouble, but sounds like a fun bird for evenings out with the wife!
    I don't know where you've been me lad, but I see you won first Prize!
    Thanks ron, windy thanked for this post
