davem: XCH-4 "Carl Boat"

The XCH-4, "The Carl Boat," had two hydrofoils in the front and one aft on a seaplane-type hull. It used two 250 hp Pratt & Whitney engines as propulsion. During US Navy tests, a helpful citizen called the Coast Guard to report that, "A seaplane has been trying to take off and undoubtably needs help." http://www.aae.uiuc.edu/cetan/
