Summary: The float plane took off, entered a steep climb, stalled and crashed into the water. The pilot's decision to depart from the unlit location was likely the result of the many psychological and physiological stressors encountered during the day. The pilot most likely experienced spatial disorientation precipitated by local geographic and environmental conditions and lost control of the aircraft.
