Relisted due to non-payment. This is a very honest project with half the proceeds going to a very deserving charitable organization. My hope for this project is for it to ultimately take flight. Sadly, I simply don"t have the time to make that happen. This is a great opportunity for the experienced builder to have a very capable amphibious aircraft.

As complete a Taylor Coot amphibian project as you are likely to find anywhere. All documentation back to original purchase of plans with the exception of builders" logs - however this project was previously owned by an A&P and would likely still qualify for the 51% rule to help you achieve a repairman certificate. This is a rare opportunity to have a great head start on an aircraft and build at 1/10th the price of an Icon.
Paperwork : -Original builder"s agreement for aircraft "SS4" -Original plans and copies with all updates -"Coot in a Nutshell" book -"The Essential Coot" book -"The Coot Story" book -Original magazine article from 1973 -West System epoxy manual
Fiberglass : -Desirable Herzikorn hull (in building jig) -Fordeck -Sponsons -Cabin top and rears -Engine cowl (and no. .no engine) -Boom Cover -etc., including windscreen and windows Note: ALL available fiberglass components that were ever available are included.
Hardware : -*Forney Precision sub-assemblies bagged and tagged (Jim Forney produced the majority of the metal sub- assembles as per plans in an effort to save the builder time. All sub-assemblies are chromated from factory) -Machined wheel hubs and axles. -Pneumatic landing gear pump and pistons -Lake Buccaneer (?) rudder pedals -Landing gear legs -Control linkages *These parts make this as close to a "fast build" homebuilt as is possible. All parts were fabricated by Jim Forney in coordination with Molt Taylor to his requirements.
Sheet Aluminum : -Alclad empannage skins -Misc. Alclad ribs, tips, and sheet stock -Tube tail boom
Wood : -Spruce and Mahogany bulkheads and spars. Note: These are built and ready for placement in the hull.

WIth the installation of these two bulkheads plades, the wings can be hung and main landing gear installed.
