Some Alaska History early on. A groundloop during that time. Then a considerable period on wheels in Idaho as a back-country family camper. We sold it to the current owner about 5 years ago on wheels. He has put it on Amphibs since. It is located in the Mid-west. Not in Salt Water. Complete logs. No hail. A good practical utility type 185 Amphibian.
