I notice that I'm not nearly so concerned about boat wakes on takeoff in the Husky as I am in the Lake or the Widgeon, both of which have turned me every way but loose by wakes.
Am I fooling myself? Anybody found themselves in big trouble in a floatplane takeoff because of boat wakes or rough water?
Also, for rough-water landings in the boats, I dump the flaps on touchdown (yes I'm careful...these are the flaps and this is the gear!) to help them stick. I don't do that in the Husky.
