Great job! Jim I felt it necessary to tell others about your unique skills and talents. Jim is a true Searey expert, and has as much knowledge as the Searey factory (and probably more) about putting them together.
I bought an owner built kit which did not meet my, Jim’s or Searey standards. Jim’s initial review was thorough and complete. Jim caught things I would never have thought of and made great recommendations to correct deficiencies and improve the plane.
I have complete confidence in Jim and his abilities. He is fair and honest and does not hurry the process or cut corners. Jim is worth the time and money to have your Searey done right, and I will feel 100% safe in a Jim Ratte built Searey. It is evident we chose the right person for the work. Well done, and thank you!
