In the intrest of a design project, I am researching various aspects of
seaplanes and floatplanes, more specificaly, feuselage/hull design, power
requirements for TO from water, use of turbofan engines as opposed to
turboprops.  The plane is to be amphibious, capable of carrying 60
passengers or more.  Any information or referances on the above topics or
others that may be relevant to such a craft would be greatly
appreciated.  Please reply by e-mail to
