Piper PA-18-150 Super Cub c/n 18-7572 was built in the last quarter of 1960 as N3829Z and was listed with Clem Clark at Underwood, North Dakota in April of 1961.
It was cancelled in May of 1964 and headed up into Canada and became CF-RMF with Norman Sorensen of Fort-S-John, British Columbia.
Its Canadian registration was cancelled on 09-07-1983 for it to return to its old N3829Z marking with David Smith of Brewster, Washington.
David re-registered it as N175JD which was certified on 10-5-1988.
The next owner that I found was Frank Stanley at Yakima Washington from 27-07-2013.
It was restored by Cub Crafters Services LLC at Yakima with ownership passing to them from 26-03-2015.
Somewhere along the way it was re-powered with a 180hp motor and fitted with Wipline 2100 amphibious floats. It also comes with Wipaire hydraulic skis.
Rob Borrius-Broek went over to Washington and flew the aircraft in the Cascade Mountains with the Guidance of a Cub Crafters Company pilot.
Two pics from Robert show N175JD.
The aircraft was containerised to Central Aero at Hamilton where Pal Waterhouse and his team re-assembled it.
Its US registration was cancelled on 26-05-2015 and it was listed to Robert on 07-09-2015.
