I got this a while ago, before it appeared on simMarket, and the model itself is absolutely superb and good fun to use.

The only issue I have is that it’s a slow beast, no speedboat and, due to the way FS models objects travelling on water (as a floatplane, with airspeed, rather than a boat with “waterspeed”), it struggles to move in a headwind. It’ll stay still with fifteen knots on the bow, but cannot move forwards.

If you’re interested, though, don’t let that put you off – just turn off the wind and enjoy!
