I realize Seabee Owner’s Club members have access to a lot of type
specific information and favorite local shops that specialize in
amphibians. However, we have a few options for Seabee owner/pilots. So,
we would like to offer any Seabee Owner’s Club member in good standing
10% off any singular maintenance request to any combination of
maintenance, paint, and interior refurbishment. This could be a
substantial savings for someone wanting an outside source to complete a
restoration. No request too small or too large. Where we really
can help is interior fabrication. We have the capability to custom
design seat upgrades, interior sidewalls, headliners, instrument panel
overlays, and install a fair amount of glass as well. Need components
painted? Give us a call.
