(Frank) Boland Flying Boat
Frank and Joesph Boland built and tested several aircraft that featured canard layouts. The 1913 flying boat appeared with a raised plane wing which tied into spanwise braces that also served as outriggers for the stabalising floats. A single fin and rudder were mounted between the wing and float on the port side. The forward canard, rigged as an all flying stabaliser, was large enough to function as a tandem wing. The engine appears to have been a pusher water cooled V-8. The flat bottom hull had two traverse steps approximately at the centre of gravity.
