The Starting Point

Trip To Orillia, OntarioEvery Project has a starting point and N728DC started with a trip to  Orillia, Ontario to inspect a Sportsman 2+2 fuselage that was for sale.  In November of 1995 we packed up the family, rented a trailer and headed to Canada to inspect and possibly buy a former builders uncompleted project.  A set of color coded plans were used to inspect tube diameters and a thorough set of measurements were also taken to confirm if the fuselage fabrication was done correctly.

It turned out that everything was spot on.  The frame was square and true, the welds looked good, and there was no corrosion.  In fact it also turned out that the fuselage was actually fabricated by Wag-Aero and sold as a kit in their catalog for a much higher price.

There was still a lot of welding to complete but this fuselage would provide a huge head start to a long and complicated project.
