I've seen wings pulled of a flying 14-13 that had so much root rot there were attach fitting bolts that were an inch or more from any wood. It had only been in Oregon for 2 years and AZ before that so it might have had good spars. Then again, the wing work needed may be the reason they were selling it.
Conventional wisdom and practices yield conventional results. If that is good enough for you:

unless one is a certified IA or knows one and is an A&P be very careful....The state of the aging GA fleet leaves much to be desired, and the liability/income conscience mechanics have no reason to risk their license and livelihood to save you a little money. I have seen good aircraft scrapped for what I consider dubious corrosion issues.

Not Epay, but craigslist...a very nice Fly Baby.
A Jenny: Confused on the engine, tho.
And a Buccaneer amphib..
Guess everyone is wanting to sell the old bird and get ready for Spring Sales and get a new bird...
1. Could it have a Geo Metro engine with a Rotax gearbox adapted to it?
2. Maybe it has a Rotax and he's throwing in a Metro?
3. He has more than one plane posted... maybe the Rotax was a carry-over from another ad that was copy-and-pasted, but he missed deleting the Rotax reference?
4. Maybe it's a twin-engine airplane?
You're right, that is a beautiful FlyBaby!
