59. I went on one of those water planes between San Juan PR and one of the V.Islands.

We were just going for the day, last minute trip to fart around and bar hop a bit, and the pilot and co did the same thing--distro'd the weight, picked up our carry-ons to make sure we didn't have ingots in there!

I did feel more comfortable knowing the thing was designed to float...we taxied from shore into the water and took off like a speedboat with wings, and landed on water and taxi'd ashore up a boat ramp. Kinda fun...!
