A pretty bird, but my airborne days are over. Had a close call on the B.C. coast near Alice Arm [ below Stewart BC ], Rode a downdraft when the seats lifted hard to the retaining bolts and the ocean approached quickly. There was an air cusion just above the water and we slowed just in time. For that reason and all the floating logs we see daily, this seems a risky way to go at times.
