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 second 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.

Robert Robbins, the new owner, will soon move it to his home in Maidstone, SK.
