Our first Bee was N6444K which we operated out of Harbor Springs MI until it was destroyed in a hanger fire in 1992. In 1994, we purchased Bob Redners' fine Bee N6283K (#496) and operated it until 2000 I believe. It is now owned by Brigid Blasch and Gus Warren. Also in 2000, we purchased #60 which we are now restoring. This airplane has a new registration number of N124AC. We have more or less stalled out on the restoration and could use some help. We are installing a Continental IO-470P on this aircraft, which came out of a Lane Riviera.

Michael Alman is an AP/IA and recently bought a Sea Bee with the Franklin B8F engine and would like to hear from others who have or had experiance with this engine:
N6234K S/N 437
"Dear Steve, thank you for your quick reply to my E-Mail. I will be sending you some photos of the aircraft or what it looked like when I bought it and what changes I am making at the present time. I will also get you the N number and serial number. I do know Richie and he has done some work for me already, he just is not a fan of the B8F engine. When I flew the plane home after I bought it, (about a 100 miles) it ran like a swiss watch, but every add I see in IRSOC has a B9F. I would like to hear from anyone out there that might be flying this great bird with a B8F. My Phone number is (616) 846-3977, E-Mail is email@example.com. Thank you so much. Mike"
