  1. https://my.flexmls.com/reneadownes/search/shared_links/4KYwK/listings/20200803173852884301000000?fbclid=IwAR394XwEhkad8WQ6K2eqlwOQVBJZaH_jcYb0VfbOJucga2FqXw2bvHSBw2g Friend sent me this the other day. Not far from where I live but outside my budget. It would be nice though. Huge house, huge hanger, lakeside, etc. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. 128 Mooney hours Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. In 35 years of flying only once or twice was I really concerned I might not make it. In considerably less time than that on the water I’ve had more opportunities to ponder my continued existence [emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. 1700 hours on a factory rebuilt for my 67C and I’m hoping it will make it to and past TBO. Engine still going strong. Skytec starter and alternator conversion was done 7 years ago and has been trouble free as well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. In recognition that sometimes you just need a patch job, I once tried to start a list of folks people had used and would recommend for a patch job. It didn’t get much traction with folks instead insisting patching is not worth it. I think the point was missed that although I generally agree that once a tank starts leaking patching probably doesn’t pay off in the long run, circumstances can be very different and in some cases patching can make sense. My plane currently has a small seep at the top of the inboard forward spar cap. If I fill up I lose 2-3 gallons over several days and then it
  6. Agree with all. Don’t see anything there I would worry about. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I don’t think so. Reading the TT literature it says it will get GPSS straight form compatible GPS boxes like the GTN/GNC series of Garmin units. My hangar neighbor installed a TT in his cardinal. He already had a GTN 750. The AP flies beautiful LPV approaches to the numbers with full GPSS. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Following. Same interest. I do believe they are compatible from everything I read. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. My Airtex carpets are 8 years old and they look good. I give them a good cleaning every anual Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Beautiful paint job. Congrats Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. This is exactly what I do and it works every time. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. He was traveling a lot for business then that stopped and so did his reason for flying. Hangars in Jacksonville area are not bad. Really nice hangars for 350-400 per month. He is in a bulk hangar so I’m thinking he is paying 200-250: Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Fuel stick. Keep it simple. Empty one tank then add 2 gallons at a time while making marks on a paint stick. Save that stick as the master to keep in the hangar and make a duplicate using the master for daily use. I use mine before every flight to compare with my fuel totalizar.

  14. Exactly, this is what I keep thinking over and over. But if I was going to make this my forever airplane probably not as much of a concern and by the time a sell it hopefully 20+ years from now the logs will not be as much of an issue given the 20 year track record. I would still take a hit, but less than now. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Unfortunately no (I did look at the baggage area through the window and it was empty). Interestingly enough, the mechanic who apparently lost the logs (according to the owner) called the owner a few years later to see if he was interested in selling the airplane. Makes me wonder if the mechanic “found” the logs and thought he could get the airplane dirt cheap. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
