Amazingly, No damage History. Complete logs, No hail. On and off floats in the eighties and early ninties.  Not on floats the last 27 years. This plane has been known to us for many years. We bought it about 20 years ago and sold it to a local here at Placerville for a few years. He sold it to the current owner who has done a lot of work to it in his ownership such as the IO-550 and the current radios.  Very high performance and desirable with the 550, float kit and 84 gallons. High visibility red paint for back-country use. Perfect for Alaska.
