It doesn't. My guess is if you put the gear on it you don't fly it off water.
Actually I did give it some consideration for mine. Best idea I came up with was, when you removed the front gear to fly off water, plug the hole in the fuselage with a rubber stopper. I didn't care for that idea for two reasons. One, if it ever came out the fuselage starts flooding with water, and two, beings it's a fiberglass fuselage I don't think a hole drilled in it with a plug going in and out of it on a regular basis would hold up very well. Of course the biggest draw back to removing the nose gear to fly off water was the hassle of dealing with the nose gear steering. My suggestion is to either put the gear on an stick to flying off land, or leave it off and fly off water (the best way). or snow.
