#855 flies again!
Attached is a picture of my Seabee.
It is ship #855, originally test flown May
20, 1947. It was parked, for unstated reasons, in autumn 1969. I
acquired it October 10, 2012, in a disassembled condition, from
Michael Daubenspeck, who is the son of Jack Daubenspeck. I have since
restored it into a flyable aircraft, but not to a “like new”
condition. Some its scars still show. The original engine has been
overhauled and the propeller has been updated with the recommended
changes required by Hartzell. It completed a successful test flight on
July 6, 2016 and added one more to the number of Seabees on the planet
