Jay Shettel's Gallery

You might recognize the photo above, taken in 1970, of Mrs. Taylor holding the bow cleat

of N108D, the Coot-A amphibian prototype designed by her husband, Molt Taylor.

I show it here because Jay is the proud (6th) owner of this flying museum-piece.

Most of its restoration was performed by Mike Head, a fine mechanic hired by the 4th

ower, Dr. Bryan Shumaker, when he lived in Michigan, so click of them for details.
