Here is a good overview of the fuselage (wood hull) with F/G nose cone.  

The spray rails angle upwards, so they are difficult to see in this view.

While Pierre was busy elsewhere, I caught Karl Senn (Ireland) trying out the passenger seat.

Meanwhile, Peter Napp and Peter Leggo (England) talk "Coot" in the background.

Note the Lycoming engine on a welded steel pylon, similar to the one used by David Woodcock.
