The way he was gliding down and had his floats extended, I think he was trying to land. (He may have had another problem). The excessive bank to try turn away from moored/anchored boats caused a rapid drop in speed and cause it to stall.

Looks like a Gruman Albatross or Wiggin seaplane. Typical stall base to final, these types did not handle well when low and slow. Very unfortunate.

Thinking on it, may be too small for a Albatross and I meant Widgeon seaplane. I had a friend who said it was a handfull to fly.

Possibly, but most stall/spin accidents occur when loading the wing a slow speed which happens in a bank attitude.

weather was in the low 40s that day - not ideal and probably outside of its performance envelope.
