Thread: Fairbanks SeaBee to Anchorage garage

  1. #1

    Default Fairbanks SeaBee to Anchorage garage

    Fought through the cold in Fairbanks this last weekend to transport a SeaBee and glorious amounts of extra parts...back to Anchorage.

    Loaded onto trailer:


    Towed with 26' Uhaul - also packed full:


    And with no damage besides having to buy a 40' conex, I'd consider it a success. I can still fit both cars (and the SeaBee) in my garage!

    And here I was thinking I did a good job hauling back my bro-in-law's snow machine trailer with a broken tongue from Lake Lousie. Much cooler haul, good work.

    I knew him as he was a customer of mine. I spoke with him about his 180 project when he was selling.

    Gosh, is that another Sea Bee sitting over on the west side, south end, of Chena Marina? Cool looking planes. Hope you have fun on the project, and more fun flying her.

    It was Dr Taylors old SeaBee. He kept it in a hanger over by Arctic Aviation at the airport.

    I moved it down to Anchorage, of which it now sits in my garage.

    George Weiss (sp?) used to have one that sat behind a building off of Van Horn for years and after he died I heard his grandson had it.
