    Dusty, I sincerely hope you do not mind that the editor gremlin hidden within me added some paragraph breaks in your post. I can see by the formatting you did, where you intended them to be, but the message board software did not interpret it correctly..

    Howd I do??



    BY EDIT: I'd like to add, Dusty, I can not tell you how much I appreciate what you bring to the sport! Your participation here is priceless! I've always wanted this place to be a pilot/owner/participant/fanatic lounge..Kind of tough sometimes but I hope we've achieved this...

    That you donate $$ to keep this place alive is beyond priceless!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

    What about Furias? Wasn't it also being rebuilt?

    That was the rumor, but last I heard nothing had been done aside from pulling the prop, cowling, and some other moderately simple stuff.

    In other recent Sea Fury news, I saw some pics of September Fury at Sanders. It looks like something is being done with it, but I'm not sure what. The new owner should have a R4360 installed, then rename it "Faster than Furias"

    Yes, that was my understanding, however I thought I had heard a rumor that it would make one last Reno, and then get shipped off to Germany. I don't know. Oddly enough its owner is listed as being in Snellville Georgia. Perhaps it was sold since it was sold by Rod? Who knows. My comment was mostly meant as a joke.

    The owner Plane Fun Inc Trustee has something to do with aircraft moving from the states out of the country, if that makes sense. They hold the registration until it transfers over or something like that. They aren't the "true" owner, the company is just based in GA.

    Went through my hard drive and found some pictures of "Gumbo"
    It's a case of too much displacement for Sport and not enough weight for unlimited.
    Sadly the owner/designer passed away and last I heard the engines and props had been sold to recover some cash. Not sure what became of the airframe.
