As I said HERE, having the engines mounted on struts above the wing have advantages more than keeping the engine and propeller clear of the spray. Here are two versions of the Saro Cutty Sark, one with a single radial engine and the lower with two streamlined ‘in line’ engines.

With Saro’s small Flying Boats the number and type of engines was very flexible as can in this line up of A17 ‘Cutty Sark’, A19 ‘Cloud’ and A21 ‘Windhover’ .
