Unfallbericht:
The float-equipped Caravan attempted to depart Harvest Lake, which has a 2200 feet takeoff area. The pilot had computed his take off distance to be 1,990 feet. The airplane did not rotate at the planned take off point so the pilot applied aft pressure on the control yoke. The airplane became airborne and struck a three foot tall berm and collided with the marsh coming to a complete stop.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot's failure to achieve the proper takeoff distance on a short water runway resulting in an in-flight collision with a berm and a marshy area on initial takeoff climb."
