The pilot reported that at touchdown, during a landing to the
northwest, a 'major unexpected wind gust from the right' tipped the
floatplane and its left wing dipped into the water. The floatplane
then nosed down, then settled back upright on its floats. The pilot
reported winds as northwesterly at about 8 kt (9 mph, 15 kmh), but was unable to
estimate gust strength. The pilot indicated that no mechanical
malfunction or failure was involved.
