Accident: Kenmore Air Harbor Seaplane Base (North Lake Washington), Kenmore, WA. 03-May-2000. The pilot Philip Yaeger,( the previously recorded owner),  was landing to the south on Lake Washington in between a buoy and a yacht. The yacht was making approximately 2-3 knots speed heading south. Winds were out of the south at 13 knots, gusting to 17 knots resulting in choppy water surface conditions. As the floatplane touched down, the yacht powered up creating a large bow wave. The aircraft contacted the wave during its southerly rollout and while decelerating in a nose high attitude. The encounter resulted in the aircraft’s right wing contacting the water. Forward visibility was restricted as the nose of the aircraft was raised during the landing on water. NTSB report WPR10CA461
