Yes, like the bottom of a boat. The boats come out on a trailer (if they are moving to another body of water, causing the concern), which makes it much easier of course; however, floatplanes can come out of the water, too (on their own wheels in many cases, and on a dolly at a floatplane base in others).

Teasel is a nasty invasive with a tough bristled seed head. It grows in big patches when it really gets going. Those float plane pilots are pretty talented. If you could find a field of teasel, skim the tops with the pontoons after slathering them with herbicide, you could knock the mussels off, kill the teasel in one shot. Multitasking, it's where it's at.
