Man those Cubs and their pilots are impressive!

Is there lots more friction to the water versus a hard runway? And how old is that plane?

He didn't have any cargo so he just pulled it just as he got on step.

There is alot more friction taking off on floats, and they are heavier. The plane was originally built in the 40's. (100 hp)

You could hog hunt out of a J3 as long as you weren't flying into a headwind, in that case the hog would outrun you.
