Tavares hosted the annual splashin event for #seaplanes at the seaplane base. It was well attended by local and distant communities as well. It was a day event with many types of seaplanes but of course our focus was on networking with and generally hanging around with the Lake line of Amphibious Aircraft and their happy owners.

Seaplane ramp started to get crowded as the day progressed
That's a Maule on floats and there were a few Searay LSA amphibians. To us, an LSA (Light Sport Aircraft) are nothing but better dressed ultra/microlights. They can be fun if one knows the limitations of flying such Aircraft.
