92, That is kool I wish I had the funds for it but at $194,000 I think I would have to pass. I would rather fly a Cesnena 172and it is just a 1/4 the cost (used). I do like the fuel burn at 5gph wish my car would get that.

I found this a couple years back, in my honest opinion, an awesome toy! I thought I actually read somewhere that an engineer or higher up from Mastercraft had a part in designing this plane. Maybe the hull??? Who knows, its still pretty friggin sweet!

So I aroused my own curiosity, John Dorton CEO/ President of Mastercraft Boats was on the board of Directors and Advisors. FWIW
