Talking It's becoming airplane-ish.

Wings are on and connected, prop is on but not yet safety-wired.

Hey, I need one of those lifts to keep my RV out of the constantly-flooding Mississippi water! How much do they cost?

$10-15k depending on options, shipping arrangements, etc. Solid investment if you drag out the acquisition cost over typical storage costs since now you can share/maximize the space

not to mention, it makes maintenance easier!

Default I got my Hartzell CS

Today I travelled to Piqua OH and picked up my prop. There they gave Dan, Mike and I a tour of the shop. The last time I was in that shop was 1984. Wow, have things changed. I was told at OSH that there was a 7-8 week lead time; I came home and ordered on Thursday and the next Tuesday, Doris called and said my prop was ready. The savings account got an early hit. She also encouraged me to bring some EAA Chapter members for a tour. Hartzell are great hosts. Thanks to Doris and Larry.

Smidler, Papa Mike is ready for some help.

N277PM Working on canopy, again.
