4 picture check your albums. Please do an internet search maybe you'll come up with one I couldn't find, I need all the help I can get.

c/n 1407, built 12/68 as model H-295 original registry N6459V Factory used for Market survey tour mag article '69 Flying Magazine sold '70, Bob Kimach MA took it to Europe spotted in Norway '70 sold '70, Tri-Co Management inc (Thomas Griffin) CO/AZ installed Rayjay/Riley turbocharger, mag article '71 both Popular Science & Sports Illustrated placed on floats sold '73, Stol Enterprises (Thomas Box) CA sold '73, dereg export reg as CF-FRF W.Y.E. Investments (Thomas Box) ON incident pilot made a precautionary landing due to engine vibration severely lead fouled spark plugs and leaky carburetor diaphragm was found @ Rochester NY 10/80 sold '80, Point du Jour ltd (Jean Cossette) QC dereg export '84, N320LM (mark for Revelations 3:20) Larry Montgomery (Larmont Aviation dealer) SC removed Turbocharger installed one time STC (SA2130CE) for enlarged upward openable in flight copilot (right hand side) window/door sold '89, William Crean (Thermo Marine) NJ sold '94, Bill Hilling PA sold '95, Ron Sutphin (Crowley Ranch) OR sold '01, Richard Burton Anchorage, AK placed on Edo 3430 floats put on Gar Aero Tundra tires oversize tailwheel installed 3,800lb up-gross

If I had known about this right side co pilot window/door at the time I owned 1233 I would have copied it. I had looked at doing something similar actually a seaplane door opening up similar to the utility door but with having to reroute the fuel lines and remove cross the tube and replace it with a diagonal tube, I wasn't confident enough in my own engineering to be able to get it past FAA engineering to continue.







1st magazine article












Factory hand out brochure








2nd & 3rd Magazine Articles in Popular Science & Sports Illustrated '71, I have misplaced both Articles.

Anyone out there have a copy of them?

Might be useful, but it sure isn't very pretty.

I had looked at doing something similar actually a seaplane door opening up similar to the utility door leaving the window the same but with having to reroute the fuel lines and remove cross the tube and replace it with a diagonal tube, I wasn't confident enough in my own engineering to be able to get it past FAA engineering to continue. If I had known about this right side co pilot window/door at the time I owned 1233 I would have used it as an example and a DER to make my door.

Be patient with these Magazine articles they are slow to load sometimes, this one is a 3.6 meg file.

added factory handout brochure, this is the front and back of actually 6 pages the way it was folded so it comes out a little different in this copy
