It's definitely a Great Planes Seawind. It's no longer in production, probably because it is such a beast to get off the water. Once in the air it flys great. When they were available the sales price for the airframe alone was >$300. You probably got $100 worth of servos and its hard to find a Saito engine for <$250 these days. Great find, hope you enjoy it.
