That Sea Bee has numerous after-market modifications: extended wings, dropped wing tips, extended spray rails and a Lycoming engine. The narrator also mentions the Chevrolet Corvette engines installed in some Sea Bees. I have seen Sea Bees with all the 4 possible engines: original Franklin, Lycoming conversion, Continental Tiara conversion, P&WC PT6A turboprop conversion and Chevy Corvette conversion. Pilots who have flown with all the different engines confirm that that 300 hp. Corvette engine has the needed power, but only burns 2/3 the fuel of any of the other conversions.
