Gnosspelius Hydro-monoplane No. 1

  The Gnosspelius Hydro-monoplane No. 1 was designed by Oscar T. Gnosspelius and constructed during 1910 by Borwick and Sons, Bowness-on-Windermere, Westmorland. It was a twin-float single-seat tractor monoplane on the lines of a Bleriot and was powered by a two-cylinder 20 h.p. Alvaston engine. The pair of catamaran hydroplane-type floats fitted originally proved to be too small, and the engine developed insufficient power for flight. A single Borwick-built hydroplane type of float, 14 ft. long and 4 ft. wide, replaced the inadequate pair, but still the machine would not take-off.
