The pilot of a float-equipped airplane reported that he planned to step taxi while making a left turn, and then takeoff. He applied takeoff power to get the airplane on step, then reduced power, and started a turn to left. The airplane turned to the left sharper than he anticipated. He applied right rudder and reduced left aileron. As the turn started to straighten out, the airplaneā€™s right wing struck the water, sustaining substantial damage. There were no preaccident mechanical issues with the airplane.
