Pushback for the Seaplane

This is certainly more a general question for all kind of seaplanes that do not have a reverser:Is it possible to use any tweak or trick to "pushback" (or should I say "row-back") the aircraft when it is on floats?I bothers me that one can not go right to the shore line, pick up the passengers and than start off again.Any chance to use the "UPPERCASE+P" trick when this aircraft is on floats?

As I have sad: I my case this does not work. If it works on your system I would be happy to hear that and try to find out what makes the difference.I think it would at much more reality to the "game" as if to use the slew mode.
"pushback" can be assigned to any key/button within the controler settings, or indeed the keyboard.I would assume it would work on both concrete/grass and water.But having said that I have not tried it myself. Worth a try though.

lol, I came across this issue doing the FSX mission "San Juan Island Run". Pulled in real nice into the U shaped dock and was stuck, no way to move backwards. I restarted the mission and pulled up to the side this time so I could pull away going forward.Found out few days later I could of Slewed.

In FS9 the default amphibian...think it was the cessna caravan...you could press F2 when stationary and it would engage a "reverse prop thrust" which was very handy. Don't know if it was carried over into FSX. Seem to think it only worked on aircraft with variable pitch props.
