Accident: Renton WA. 19-Sep-2010.The pilot reported that he performed a pre-flight inspection, and then began to taxi the aircraft from the seaplane base to the departure area. He reported encountering a heavy rain shower during taxi, with winds out of the south between 4-6 knots. The air traffic control tower cleared the pilot for a westbound departure, however, he elected to continue with a crosswind takeoff. The pilot applied left wing down aileron control inputs, as he applied engine power. As the aircraft accelerated, it began a drift to the left. The pilot reported that he was unable to stop the drift with the application of full right rudder, and that during this time he may have inadvertently relaxed the aileron control input. The pilot elected to abort the takeoff, and as he reduced engine power the right wing struck the water, resulting in substantial damage to the wing spar and aileron. The pilot reported no mechanical malfunction or failures. NTSB report WPR10CA461.
