was built by Lake Aircraft in Sanford, Maine in 1976 and is a model LA-4-200 with a Lycoming IO-360 engine (200 horsepower). Its gross weight is 2600 pounds. It cruises at 120 miles per hour and seats three adults (or 2 adults and 2 children).
I owned the aircraft, singly and with a co-owner, from 1996 until 2002.

The Lake Amphibian Flyers Club has no web page but you can email Marc Rodstein, the club's director, or call 941-635-3381. Marc has created a web page with pictures from the LAFC's annual fly-in seminar at River Ranch, Florida. For information about the fly-in in February 2000, contact Mark.
The Lake is not unlike the Grumman Seaplanes that preceded it in the 1940s, such as the Grumman Albatross.
