In trying to learn more about so-called "Lake" amphibians (LA-4 series, Buccaneer, Renegade, etc.) I have seen that the type has been owned and built by several different companies over the years - Colonial Aircraft, Lake Aircraft Corp. (LAC), Consolidated Aeronautics, Revo, Inc. and Global Amphibians LLC (which given the timing I assume was aka "LanShe" in Ft. Pierce, FL.)
I was just wondering if there is a consensus among "Lake" experts, purists, and aficionados as to which examples (by vintage, models, company, etc.) are considered to be the best built, most desirable, etc. In other words, are all "Lake Amphibians" created equal or not?
I hope to hear back from John S. on this and anyone else with a valid opinion based on experience or other first-hand knowledge. Thanks!
