do you leave your amphib in the water all year?

Austin Watson

i have a client who plans to keep his c18x/aerocet amphib moored/docked in a northwestern usa freshwater lake year round. my simple boeing engineer mind logic says, "don't do that", for several reasons (boiling down to safety and maint cost). i have three no votes and one yes do it vote from people whose opinion i regard. the one yes vote surprised me. does anybody here keep an amphib in the water for months at a time or year round? if so, please explain why it's not an issue. if you want to rant about why not to, have at it.
