Accident: Ahousat BC Lat 49.17N, Long 126.04W. 05-Oct-1987 The pilot planned to step-taxi from the dock to the take-off area; the line of taxiing was to be between a marker buoy on the left and a boat on the right. After take-off power was applied and with the water rudders up, the aircraft started to swing to the left. The pilot applied full right rudder, but the aircraft continued to swing, so the pilot closed the throttle. The aircraft was coming off the step when it struck the buoy, and a large hole was torn in the left float. After the pilot and passengers evacuated the aircraft, it rolled over and sank to the floats. The wind was light at the time of the occurrence. No injuries were recorded.
