1,650 flight hours including 560 floats.
That's very low time, especially for Alaska. 500 floats usually means you're still flying a 185 maybe a Beaver but definately not a turbine machine. It also doesn't say how much Kodiak time she had but if they are quoting 560 float time I'm guessing only a hand full of hours on the Kodiak, she was probably doing this solo to build up her time for insurance etc.
The floats on the Kodiak do feel a bit different than other floats. And there was a mention that her water rudders were down which on landing, if you have alot of rudder input, can cause you to vere sharply.
