THE desired qualities for high performance in take‐off were enumerated and discussed in Part I of this article, while certain suggestions were made in Part II, whereby the limiting take‐off weight of modern seaplanes could be increased without adversely affecting the air performance. So far no reference has been made to either atmospheric or sea conditions. In this country there is, on the average, only one dead calm day every three weeks, so that in practice a take‐off is seldom made in flat calm water and in no wind. Before leaving this subject therefore it is desirable to examine the performance of a seaplane in take‐off when there is a wind and to determine the probable effect of wind on the liimting take‐off weight.
