The 1924 Waterman-Boeing C were modified surplus USN floatplanes for passenger operations. Waterman was able, through craft, to buy six Model Cs for $200 each (USN cost $10,250 each, and selling nationally in lake areas for $2,000 each) for use a basis for his Big Bear (CA resort) Airlines.
 
The five place Waterman-Boeing C was later converted to wheels and Renault engine, expanded foup place front cockpit, internal gas tanks relocated under the top wing, and enlarged tailskid.

One plane is seen in the 1926 film, "Mantrap," in which Waterman also played a bit part, and two were destroyed in filming "Dawn Patrol" as the ones that crash on take-off during a raid on the German aerodrome.
