  2. Hello Justin! A good friend of mine lives in Melbourne as well. Best of luck on your build!

    I think I may have mistaken a Republic Seabee for the Skigull. Sorry about the false hope!

    I was watching the Ultralight camera. Looked like it was landing in the background on 27. Saw a very similar color scheme/design, but it's possible it wasn't actually the SkiGull

    I think I just saw the SkiGull land at Oshkosh on one of the webcams. Nice!

    Anybody know what's happening with Rutan's Skigull? Since it started flight testing three years ago I can only imagine they found some massive problems that are either taking a long time to fix or aren't worth fixing. I'd be interested to know which
  7. Saw this one pop up on the Pilots of America forum. A gentleman that has terminal cancer donated his project to an EAA chapter in Georgia. Here's his description. Not much to go on but if someone's interested I'm sure I can get the contact info
  8. Very unique! Looks like a good starting place for a sim cockpit. I sure wouldn't want to be in the air in it!
  9. I remember seeing this one at Rough River. Gorgeous airplane!
  10. Tempest is another really good search option for Craigslist https://www.searchtempest.com/
  11. Worth half the asking price? Maybe even less?
  12. https://atlanta.craigslist.org/sat/avo/d/quickee-200/6724863218.html No logbooks ?
  13. Man, that one looks like a great place to start a project!
  14. Good ol' Guntersville airport! I helped out the EAA chapter with their pancake breakfast when I was the CAP. I definitely need to join the local chapter since I still spend a fair amount of time out there. My wife and I even got married in the vintage aircraft museum. Had a Waco and a Stearman as our backdrop! There are definitely a few RV's out there. The fact that they're so common was probably the biggest turn off for me. I like ramp appeal, and you don't get that by looking like everyone else!
  15. I've been a Rutan enthusiast since I was a child and saw the 3-2-1 Contact episode about the Voyager. Aviation has been one of my biggest passions throughout life and I was able to earn my PPL in 2008. I have built cars since I was young and naturally decided that I needed to build my own airplane. I had myself convinced that the RV-7 was going to be the one. (please don't ban me!) I figured since it was newer, I was comfortable with metal, etc. My son and I went to Oshkosh in '10 and caught one of Burt Rutan's forums. Then we caught Dick Rutan's forum. At that point I decided they were the two coolest guys on earth and I had to build a Long-EZ! We went back the following year for Burt's tribute and attended everything EZ we could get our hands on. I attended Rough River a couple of years but always managed to be there when everyone was somewhere else, lol. Life has a way of kicking you in the gut at times and I still haven't been able to actually start making airplane parts. I am working my way through the composite practice handbook though. I've read the CP's beginning to end at least four times and have of course scoured YouTube for all of the Rutan and Mike Melvill videos I can. Mike has perched himself at the top of my coolest pilots in the world rankings. I've put together my plans from the OpenEZ project and marked all of the changes in the CP's. My wife and I just moved into our new house in Alabama with a shop this year. I'm starting to put my workspace together and get rid of a bunch of extra junk. Hopefully within the next year I can start to slowly work my way through the build.
