    @jamesPLANESii very true. I was thinking along the lines of the Hurricane and Sea Hurricane in terms of naming, but sea hurricane definitely makes more sense then sea mountaineer. I'm glad you like it!

    I think Mountaineer Lake maybe would have been more suitable cuz the sea is the exact opposite to a mountain but still the plane is very good. :D

    Wow! I think I like this one even more than the land version! Flies great, and I love the TPD insignia and “Mountaineer” on the side. Really excellent.
