Complete logs. No hail. No corrosion. No damage history. Complete logs. Four owners. Always hangared. On and off floats all it's life. Never in salt water. Currently based in Carson City NV. Turbo was added last year and a TOP overhaul was done at the same time. Take off on Tahoe at 7000 feet elevation was 120 seconds before the turbo and 35 seconds after the turbo was added. Extended wings, Horton, VG's and the turbo on the 550 makes this a very useful float plane with over 1,000 lbs useful load on floats.
