As a pilot how would you feel about wings held on by rusty bolts ?

Get an Accredited Marine Surveyor to look at those bolts before you take her out. You have three SAMS Accredited Surveyors in your area ....

Erik Will AMS up in Sodus
Ken Johnson AMS in Clayton
Ira Jones in Williamson

You can get their contact info at Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors
