Bought new in 1977 and based in Maine and New Hampshire. On and off floats of various types in New England from 1977 to 2009 when it was moved with a new owner to Alabama on wheels until present time.  Currently based in California at the facility of Skywagons.com at Placerville Airport.  The 77 year is a popular one because it is unique in that it is the only year of 180 or 185 that has a 12 volt system AND the "Late Style Panel" Some back country operators want this combination of a later panel layout but the ease of service and maintenance of the 12 volt system. This plane, being float kitted and being newer than 1974, has the "Big Fin" of the 185 on it from the factory. This means that it can have the 290 Lb Gross Weight Increase STC that Kenmore offers. This plane has this already installed giving it the 3190 Lb Gross Weight and a useful load of almost a 185. Coupled with the 520 upgraded engine you end up with a winning combination for less than the price of a similar 185. Complete logs, No hail, No Corrosion and surprisingly it seems no damage history.
