Default Flottorp history

I am looking for historical information on the Flottorp propeller. Haven't turned up anything on the web.

I'll definitely be interested in what you find as I have no information at all.

I should try to contact a guy I sold a prop to a long time ago. He was a descendant of Ole Flottorp. As I recall, there was a fire at some point that destroyed a lot of their historical documents.

Bob:
I just bought a Flottorp to add to my Luscombe propeller collection. I would like to know more of Ole' Flottorp's history - where and how he got started and major milestones in his and the company's lives.
