ISPA member Dean Rickerson's Seawind, N6007, which flew for the first time on April 5, 2003 is the 58th Seawind to fly. Dean's stunning Seawind, built with the capable assistance of Graham Woodd, has a 450 HP twin turbocharged IO-540, and is the most powerful piston powered Seawind that we know of. Note the wingtips, among the many features unique to this Seawind are retractable sponsons. Photos on this page were sent in by Margaret Ibbotson, Dean Rickerson, and Graham Woodd. Thank you.

Recent photo of  Dean & Margaret with friends.  Dean mentioned something about skis?? I guess

we can imagine why he'd be interested in skis. With skis he could be landing on 'water' year-round.

Dean asked me to send you some pictures of our Seawind (attached) and asked me to pass on the following information:
- we have been able to cruise at 220 mph at 8,000 ft using 60-65% power
- we have flown at 220 mph at sea level in a steep dive with the gear out and everything held together! (but NOT fun!)
Best regards,
Margaret Ibbotson
