Tres bien! Jean-Luc and his Club in France just finished putting this Seabee together. From what I understand, it is part of the Seaplane Flying Club in France. Congratulations Jean-Luc! First flight was January 23, 2016.
Jean-Luc and his crew. They all have that distictive Seabee smile!
Nice looking sweat shirt!
I love the hat too!
