Murray,
I'll give you the A word on that one .. awesome!

This pic = glass on 6 mile wide Clarence Strait slightly disturbed by Willy.



Marin's right. I once ran around in circles w my big OB boat to rough up the water so a friend could take off w his Cesna 150. Serious glass is "sticky" and Bob had been to Vancouver on a shopping spree w this awesome new girlfriend and she loaded down the plane so it wouldn't take off w full fuel .. that they needed to get home to Masset. So I tore up the glass and they finally got off.

As to being dangerous I suppose on landing if one was going fast and lightly loaded the stickiness of glass could cause a flip endo .. the stickyness of the glass causing too much drag. Waddiua think Marin?

Murray. UFO sunrise is one of the coolest photos I've seen in sometime! These are the best I can do, I'm afraid.

Sunset during my Gulf of Mexico crossing... I was doing 5 knots and no, there is absolutely zero wake at that speed on Seaweed. There is a bit of turbulence at the stern for maybe two feet, but that's it. Life is sweet.



And those jellyfish are cool... reminded me of the movie Finding Nemo. Great picture!

Anyone who has spent any time boating on the Neuse, Pamlico Sound and Pamlico River will testify what an awesome photo that is. The first time I ever crossed the Albemarle Sound it was like that.... but never again...

I swear all mother had to do was read Albemarle or Pamlico on the chart and she'd get queasy. [And generally there'd be a pretty good reason she was not feeling so swell... or perhaps it was the swells, cross waves, current and the roll of the boat that made her sick.]

Not quite glassy water but an uncharacteristic flat day on Johnstone Strait. Took this while lung cod fishing the other year.

[QUOTE=Marin;328013]It would take me far to long to explain why glassy water is so dangerous to a seaplane pilot. Not once you're on it but landing on it and taking off from it. Landing is the far more potentially dangerous situation, but it can get a pilot in trouble when taking off with a heavy load.

Marin,

Is the danger due to not being able see where the sky ends and water begins? In my HS and College days I was on the swim teams. During the diving part of the meets another member of the team would splash the area near the diving board to make it easier for the diver to judge where the surface was. You may notice thst the surface is always agitated in Olympic diving. Just wondering if the reason is similar.

Rob
