beware the down wind landing, our short coupled birds are unforgiving on floats and the few times I've done it I felt luck had more to do with preventing a water loop then my fast rudder footwork. Always jagged to the left abruptly and full right rudder to the firewall is essential then off it just as quick as she jagges the other way.

super jelouse of you though. I'm laying here with a crushed foot grooving on pain meds that ain't really getting it today...
