This past April we had a Forum visitor that corrupted this page with a post that multiplied itself many times over. When we first started the Forum, I opened it to all visitors but have now changed it so a membership approval is required. I will screen Forum members just a bit to ensure they have a legitimate interest in AAB and seaplanes in general.
It took a while but I was able to delete the intruder and save the original posts.
In Carlsbad Jet Center ( CRQ ) , and with a quick glance I see on the wall see some welcomed history on a poster that reminded me of the Flying Boats, Hawaii and all the work you do for this site Tom Thank you & Mahalo.
I was told that sometime around the late 1960s Charles and Maureen purchased an 18-foot cabin cruiser, that my father had built a few years earlier from plans sold by the "Glen L" company. I vaguely recall seeing a photograph of Maureen with the boat. It would have looked like this sketch, but with an inboard motor and outboard drive: https://www.glen-l.com/designs/cruiser/dsn-nomla.html Does anyone remember the boat or have any photos of it? Thanks.
Following some very unfortunate accidents involving two separate Grumman Goose G21A aircraft in 2008, and the growth of the Regional Airline "land aircraft" flight schedule, a new airline division, Wilderness Seaplanes which started service on May 5, 2016 was established to take over the seaplane division of Pacific Coastal Airlines. Nice to see 3 Goose aircraft are still flying and active on the BC Coastline. The new Pacific Coastal Airlines Seaplane Division , Wilderness Seaplanes are based at Port Hardy and Bella Bella, British Columbia, Canada.
