Hi Mike - I never noticed the boat propeller mounted beneath the hull.  And I never noticed that my pic was a pusher prop, not the tractor prop on your pics-  Undecided   A very unusual design indeed.  I thought they would just mount an "outboard" motor to that big transom wall at the back of the boat ...
     Well - here is an easy one for any one ...   What is the plane used in the following endangered species recovery project?

Close enough.  My pictures were of the Booth Flying Boat, which has a different propellor/radiator and seating arrangement than the Booth Baby Flying Boat (I believe one was a development or modification of the other, not sure which version came first).

From  : E. R. Johnson. American Flying Boats and Amphibious Aircraft: An Illustrated History

"Booth Flying Boat (1931) Built sometime in 1931 by H.T. Booth, who lived in Freeport, New York, the two-place Booth flying boat featured a two-bay biplane layout with a tailplane supported by booms running from the wing and hull. A water-cooled engine buried in the hull forward of the cockpit (make and horsepower power unknown) used a geared drive-shaft to turn a tractor propeller mounted on the upper wing. A separate 32-hp marine outboard motor was also installed to drive a boat propeller mounted beneath the hull. Available data does not mention dimensions, weights, or performance, or whether or not the aircraft was actually ever flown. Booth, an ex-Curtiss employee, is reported to have been involved earlier in the design of the Kirkham Air Yacht."

What's next?

Cheers,

Mike

I thought you meant because it was shaped like a phone booth - DUH - which it is not - my Bing search never brought up the picture before.  I thought I had to join Pinterest of Getty Images to find these copyrighted images  Huh
THE BOOTH BABY FLYING BOAT: Henry Booth, a well-known aeronautical designer and engineer of Freeport, L.I., has designed a new two-seater baby flying-boat, which when in production will sel for about 1,500 dols. This boat is powered with a four-cylinder 32 h.p. Johnson Outboard Marine Engine, has a wing spread of 28 feet, a top speed of 75 m.p.h., and a landing speed of 36 rn.p.h. Under test the boat reached an altitude of 8,000 feet and consumed only three gallons of petrol an hour. When fully loaded it weighs 700 pounds.

What's the story behind the civil war pterodactyl photo?
 

When you begin to fly you are issued two bags, one full of luck and an empty one for experience.&&The object is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
