    looks like I am thinking of driving down to check out the stuff. and get a flight around the area. anyone staying at the place and
camping out or do some of you have hotels. ?/
John Tucci - Apr 11   Viewers  | Reply
    Ron, I'm arriving Friday, leaving Sunday after flying. If weather goes south, I plan on leaving Saturday.     
Buck Bray - Mar 26   Viewers  | Reply
    I plan on attending again this year. I find the Rusty Pilot Seminar to be a good refresher for your BFR followed by Seaplanes 101
presented by a fellow seaplane enthusiast and good company of other pilots.
Sauers, Jeff - Mar 26   Viewers  | Reply
    I'm planning on going.     
John Tucci - Mar 27   Viewers  | Reply
    I shared an email with Brian this morning. I'm planning on driving down Friday afternoon. Looking to attend the refresher and
maybe get a biannual in, even if I need to stay until Sunday. Hope to meet a few Searey owners along the way.

    I might be able to make it if the weather is good. It is only a little more than an hour away from me.     
John Tucci - Apr 04   Viewers  | Reply
    Brian, I spoke with Helen at CSP, I'm driving down Friday. Weather permitting I'll get up in their Searey Sat and Sun, then head

    so this won't be a beach party- just an airport fly in??     
Buck Bray - Apr 15   Viewers  | Reply
    Kevin- we could add a beach party. There is a sandy beach/grass strip with restaurant just south of W29 at Kentmore. I'm only 40
nm SW by Searey at 2W6 (2 hours by car) between the Potomac and Patuxent rivers. Fun flight across the bay, pop over to St
Leonard's creek, down the Patuxent River and pop up to land at 2W6 (around 37 of the 40 miles is over water). See Rob's excellent
video of the route ( and just turn right and land a 2W6 before crossing the bridge
north of Patuxent. Anyone is welcome to spend Saturday night with me and splash around Sunday if the weather is good. I plan to
fly up Saturday if the weather is good or drive up if it's not fun flying weather Saturday.

    Thanks for your generous offer Buck- Looks like I will be getting a hotel room as my son now wants to join up with me by flying our Cessna 210 down also, and along with the North East Seareys possibly joining us too, so the party is getting too big to intrude on your home. Forecast looking good so far for the weekend so hopefully we will meet up at the fly in. I plan on flying young eagles flights in the morning Saturday     
Buck Bray - Apr 22   Viewers  | Reply
    I'm looking forward to the NE and DELMARVA Seareys joining in a large gaggle! Our local EAA chapter hosts several Young Eagle
events each year. My understanding is next Saturday will be giving rides outside of the Young Eagle program unless you bring your
own forms.
D'Angelo, Kevin - Apr 23   Viewers  | Reply
    Yes - bringing plenty of Young Eagle forms     
Brian Furnell - Apr 11   Viewers  | Reply
    appears that way.... but the water is really really close ... ahah

    Friday I made a stop on the Susquehanna river on my way to the Fly in for gas and lunch      Attachments:

    Then found my hotel for the weekend- landed and pulled up to hotel and was thinking about parking next to hotel and then remembered tide change might leave the bird high and dry in the morning so decided to tie down at airport      Attachments:

    Met a prospective Searey pilot at the airport so departed for dinner with John Tucci for some splash s and beaching ending up at the Kentmoar restaurant. After some hard decision making took a couple of Marketing ladies for rides. Part of their jobs were laying on the new autos at the car shows in Bikini's. John had to patiently wait on the beach while I gave the rides to the laddies.      Attachments:

    Thanks Kevin for my very first and very memorable Searey Flight. I'm looking forward to more splash-ins in the future. I had a good
2 hours, in CSP's Searey, after you and Bill departed W29 for Buffalo. I was able to get a feel for the Searey from the left seat and
log 8 water landings. I also did 3 on land, back at W29, thankfully without incident, a few more and I'll have my endorsement. Next stop will be the factory, sometime during the summer.

Thanks again to you and Bill for a great weekend. Hey and that band Saturday night at the "Jetty" we're Awesome!

    Some Laddie !!

    Unfortunately we brought a lot of attention to the ride giving and the owner of the restaurant showed up and politely told us that we could not park their for dinner and mentioned their is a grass field to park at q 5 minute walk away. So we obediently took off and landed on the grass field . Walked over and we had a delicious dinner. Little did we know that the field was notamed closed and were scolded upon returning to the plane by one of the owners of the airpark. In the end we had a pleasant conversation and departed for W29 for the evening. Never thought to check the notams after we were told to park next door.      Attachments:

    Looks like the owner of 3232L didn't read the notam, either.

But if that field is 3W3 (Kentmorr), and their own website ( ) both say it's still open.
D'Angelo, Kevin - May 02   Viewers  | Reply
    It opened up the next day- it was closed previously due to soggy conditions but was hard a rock when we landed which is whythey opened it up the next day and we did return legally then     
Don Maxwell - May 02   Viewers  | Reply
    Aha. I would have joined you guys at W29, Kevin, but a flight on Friday turned up a brake fluid leak, and I didn't have time to fix it. We're about 90 Searey minutes SSW of there.     
D'Angelo, Kevin - May 01   Viewers  | Reply
    Saturday was a fun filled day after getting our early briefing on giving rides to the kids I shared some splashing and cruising the Chesapeake with three enthusiastic kids. While I was giving rides my son showed up in our Cessna 210 from Buffalo and we then proceeded to splash all over the Chesapeake islands in search for another water access lunch spot. One was recommended that was not open yet for the season but just around the corner was a Yacht club/golf club that were nice enough to let us eat there. I think that was a good choice as the food was probably a lot better than the closed beach bar would have been. Can't beat spending a full day exploring and splashing with your son in such a searey heaven area. At the end of the day decided to hunt for the perfect Searey home and couldn't decide which home to buy. In my dreams
We missed the other Searey guys that had planned on meeting up due to mainly lousy weather up north,but ya can't control the weather. Hey Buck what happened to you?

    Hey Kevin great adventure! I didn't see you when I arrived by car for the morning seminar because you likely were up giving a ride.
When we broke from the seminar I was told that you arrived Friday and had already left. Your splashing lunch sounds better than my
$5 hotdog lunch. If I knew you flew down in your Searey I would have flown up. At launch time from my airport I decided the risks
outweighed the rewards without any other Seareys joining. My home airport not that far SW had marginal visibility, crosswinds
gusting over 20 and forecast of storm cell forming near Bay Bridge in the afternoon.
D'Angelo, Kevin - May 09   Viewers  | Reply
    yes that cell was threatening all day but never reached us, my original plan was to attend the seminar and say hi to ET but was just having too much fun with my son. I didn't see his Sea Bee the times i was at the airport- Did he give the seminar? He used to be a regular at our Seaplane weekends up north. We need to get a Searey fly in a little farther North for all of the Norther Reys that we all can reach in a couple of hours     
Don Maxwell - May 09   Viewers  | Reply
    Kevin, come a little farther southwest on September 30:     
Buck Bray - May 09   Viewers  | Reply
    ET flew United and provided an interesting seaplane presentation. I look forward to joining a northern gaggle and all will be welcome
at my new digs after I get moved in.
Dave Edward - May 01   Viewers  | Reply
    Sounds like the perfect SeaRey day. Is that a grass strip behind the shoreline homes ?     
D'Angelo, Kevin - May 03   Viewers  | Reply
    no Dave -just looks that way- that really would have been the perfect searey home - all weather landing     
Buck Bray - May 05   Viewers  | Reply
    I'm in the process of moving to an airpark near the bay. Plenty of visitor parking surrounded by rivers and the bay.      Attachments:  


Dennis Scearce - May 06   Viewers  | Reply
    Looks like a dream place to live. Congratulations!!     
Don Maxwell - May 05   Viewers  | Reply
    When you get moved in, Buck, we'll all come and descend on you. (If you can arrange for us to sneak in through R-4007, that is.)     
Buck Bray - May 05   Viewers  | Reply
    I'm looking forward to fly in visitors Don. There is a VFR corridor to the airport from the N below 800 feet through R-4007 which only
requires a quick call to Pax tower when active to enter the edge of Class D. Approaches from other directions would require
contacting approach control when active.
Sauers, Jeff - May 01   Viewers  | Reply
    Sorry I missed it. I took off from MTN and had a split gear condition when I raised the gear, then when returning for landing,
although gear was down and locked, Betty was screaming at me and could not be silenced. Decided it was not a good day to be
flying kids around. Spent the rest of the day troubleshooting. Kevin, sounds like you had a lot more fun than I did,
