Here is a real "sleeper" of a Coot in Williams Lake, B.C.  Built and flown by Jean Lepine (P.Q.) in 1974 and improved by its present owner, Cameron Linde, it has remained largely unknown until

"discovered" by Ron Henderson and Sean Wiens in 2006. Shown above are Sean and Cameron,

talking "Coot" after removing ~200 pounds of "gear" so Sean could assess its empty weight.
