I joined this forum to learn a little bit more about the Grumman Goose and was told by "Kiwithrottlejockey" to get a copy of the book "The Grumman Amphibians — Goose, Widgeon & Mallard” by Fred J. Knight with Colin R. Smith, which I did. It is the bible of "Grumman Amphibians" and I'm glad & thankful he gave info to get it. But there are certainly more aircraft that land on water than the Grumman. This forum seems a little slow so I thought I would give some sites about flying boats other than the Grumman. Here are around 8 hours of flying boats videos for anyone that would like to look at, but then I stand corrected, around 10 min. is about a DC-3 float plane, the rest is about flying boats.

I would like to add, this is not a complete list, just something to look into if interested.
