Jason, the new forum looks great. Lets see if we can get a good discussion going around seaplanes. I hope we see a lot of new names join the ranks. Thanks for the effort to make something worthwhile for us.

Nice avatar, Tim!
Glad it worked. Hope it was not too much of a hassle.
I am glad I adjusted the size so they can be bigger than the used to be.

Well Jason, now you are my target! I would like to see more color or something. Nah, I just wanted to be the first to complain about something but I didn't mean it. Good luck to you and to the rest of us. I hope we can have a forum where we can share questions/answers and just a good ole time. FF

We will have a bunch of fun here! I will do my best to keep people happy and humming!
I've been the target for a while now. Pulling this baby out of the sand within a week really took a bunch of time.
Guess what, I took the smilies away! That was a bold move, because I know, some 6 weeks from now I will have someone
complaining about the lack of smilies!

Was that not one of the things that bugged people?
You guys feel free to snoop around and hit me with issues and things you find.
Maybe not all at once, but eventually I will get this monster caught up. I never knew how many control features I have!
It's the exact same software we had in the other place, but I just could not touch stuff.

It's my living room, but your place! I will treat it as such, promise!

Jason: Good luck with the new forum. I'm sure with your hard work and commitment it will be a great success.
Keep your feet wet. And tell Tim he is late getting his feet wet, mine took their first dip 3 weeks ago at Ice Out.

Thanx for the welcome, thanks for the site!
GA & floatplanes NEED more groups/organizations, strong voices,etc. to keep our floats on the waterways. If more folks complain about our presence than promote it, we'll lose it.

Oops, [soapbox mode off]
My name's Logan, I live in beautiful downtown Nimpo Lake. (Pop: just a few)
I'm just finishing up a frame-up restore of my '56 PA18. Just today sprayed the last of the PolyTone, and tomorrow will start the finishing off of the engine install. Next task is to get the oil cooler mount to miss the bendix on the new SkyTek starter. Everything is rebuilt so she'll be better 'n new any day now!! YeeHaw!!

I moved here (the Chilcotin) in N-central BC about 7 yrs ago, and the culture shock was a good one, I absolutely love it here. I have about 60-70 flights in my SuperCub and still lots more to see/discover within an hour of the dock. Amazing. I'm planning on a few camping trips this summer (will be my first time "away from home" in the plane!!

I was hatched in St Paul, Minn in '47 and have been fortunate to see most of the world, which makes me appreciate N America even more! After 5.5 yrs in the USAF I went to Victoria (Capital city on Vancouver Isle) and just kinda stayed around. :) I've done lots of stuff, but never even dreamed of owning a plane, much less a floatplane. Interesting story, will tell ya another time.

Glad to see a dedicated floatplane forum, I reckon it's about time 'eh? (that's Canuck for huh) :)

See ya's around.

Glad to be here, Jason, thanks for setting up this forum.

Strapped the floats on last week, life got way better here in Minnesota.

Hi Jason, yep I was curious too so posted what is actually a photo from last year, float struts are painted now. What file formats can we upload?

It's a 180hp Sportsman 2+2 on Montana straight floats with 180hp Lycoming and McCauley "Borer" prop. It's a riot to fly.

Started on my building adventure late 2004, flew on wheels summer of 2008, floats summer 2009. A whole lot happens in a fellers life over those almost 5 years of building.
