a waterplane powered by an Elto Quad outboard during the 1930 National Regatta on the Connecticut River in Middletown, CT, October 1930

a small plane with a limited loft above the water, flown like a seaplane, and powered by a small sled or boat propelled by an outboard motor.

 A further object of his invention was to provide “the same thrills as actually flying a sea plane without the attendant risk and which is far less expensive to buy and operate than a standard sea plane which carries its own power plant.”

Patent 1,825,363 was issued September 29, 1931.
