I just wanted to say I had a great season with my Seawind, and it was my "go to" amphibious that I kept on my boat. I finished the season without any mishaps at all, and not once did I have to jump in the raft to go out and retrieve it. I also kept the Multiplex Gemini on the boat, but mainly flew the Seawind, since it flew so well.

The only quirk is the downward pitch when applying power, but once you are aware of this it's easy to compensate. I'm sure any model with it's motor mounted on a tail pod will exhibit the same characteristic. Really not much of a problem.

I also beefed up the motor mount. As a matter of fact I completely redesigned it, using mainly liteply.

Also tapped the wing mount and use a socket head bolt. Very secure now.
