The pilot stated he was performing a touch-and-go landing and the aircraft floated and touched down over half the way down the runway. He elected to make a go-around. When the aircraft would not climb to clear trees and telephone wires at the end of the runway, he aborted the go-around. The aircraft touched back down on the runway and he was unable to stop the aircraft before overrunning the runway. The aircraft collided with a dirt bank and nosed over.
