Default Any SEABEEs ???

Hi All, I am new to this thread, and looking for a reasonable running M715. I presently have a 1971 Mutt, and would like to work with a M715 also. Any SEABEES out there ? Thank you, SEABEE

Not a Seabee but did serve in a Department of the Navy that kept bad men from picking on sailors and taking their shiny toys.
Had a great uncle that was a Seabee back in the first half of the 40s in the Pacific theater. He was a logger before and after the war and probably the best cat skinner I ever knew. He built road and the building site for my childhood home on the side of a mountain in N CA back in the early 70s. When I tore down the mobile home and shop in 2010 for my mom to build a new house there she had it done all legal with permits and such. The surveyor that surveyed it for the permit asked how we had got it so level back in the early 70s without a survey and stakes. I told him the name of my great uncle and he said "that explains it, he was one heck of an operator."

You are SEABEE62 on G838 with M151a2?
If so, we know each other well.

Welcome, and although I'm not a SEABEE, I have made quite a few marking sets for SEABEE trucks. Somewhere I used to have quite a few pics of M715's in original SEABEE markings. Here is a link to my SEABEE marking page, http://www.deltateamdecals.com/seabees.html I got my SEABEE logo from a former SEABEE who brought home an original stencil in his gear and allowed me the opportunity to scan it and make copies in the decal program.

I was a 2nd class steelworker ...ACB 2 Little Creek. I have a 715 I am thinking about selling. I just finished a 4 year project rebuilding an m37...now it's on 40 inch mudders , v8 4 speed. The m715 is all stock right now , fording kit , pretty good condition.
