    I believe it was just himself and a dog. He was not having fun. He was trying to get to Key West , he gave up and ditched it at Marathon. He left from Northern Michigan. He flys that little plane all over the country. I don’t think his wife loves the plane as much. We had a family friend like that. She would fly commercial flights to meet up with her husband. Smart lady, she is still here. Sadly Bob crashed his plane in Virginia coming back from Florida a few years ago.

    It was windy enough in Punta Gorda that the flight coming in was diverted and had to sit in Sarasota for a couple hours before coming to take us back up here to the frozen North.

    Not the best timing to come back up here. Weather forecast is crappy!! Up to a half inch of ice followed by 6" of snow.

    **** it. Doing all my stringers. And then a new floor over everything. Then a cockpit refresh.

    2019 was a good year. Time to finish the restoration I started twelve years ago. Thanks Trump!

    I believe the moisture that was coming might of brought it. But it all got pushed below us and turned into water, not snow.

    No way. Ain't nobody got time fo that.
    I took the cockpit out and emptied the tank and took it to the shop. Shop pulled power and did the bilge sections. Now is pulling tank and floor and doing the rest. They will replace and wrap the new stringers and the short transverse framing members and glass in a new composite floor and give it back to me with the floor ready for covering. And motors aligned on new mounts. (Same offshore bracket, new angle bracket because new stringer) I'll carpet the floor and put the cockpit back in when spring comes.
    Shop is actually doing two 28s this winter.

    WOW
    Sounds like quite the project

    Happy Monday
    Storm here didn't meet it's forecast either
    A little snow, ice, and sleet; but nothing as terrible as the fake news weather team said

    Yeah... but they were able to use same rigging, drives are good, power is good (100 hours), tank is solid. Cockpit goes in and out in a day.
    Just a bunch of glass work. Probably should have been done 12 years ago. But now is a good time, so...

    Having the power built, broken in and verified makes it a little more predictable.
