well, totally ideal, would be a grumman albatros. 2 awesome sounding growling engines, an awesome place to hang a hammock between either engine and the wing tip pylon. None of the slow ass speeds of boats and twice the fun.
Better have deep pockets. Twice the fun and a thousand times the cost. There's an Albatross parked at my local airport, hasn't moved in years.
nah, you are exaggerating. It's only 200 times the cost. And you've gotta carry a spare engine with you at all times and the mechanic to install it. But still, we're talking the "ultimate" so there you go.
Although, I did hear from a friend of mine that there is a rather large monohull (I don't like monohulls) out there with a BEAVER on it.
That would be a DHC-2 on floats, not what most of you were thinking.
