Know This Flying Boat?

A Grumman Widgeon 2 engined amphibian has been flying off Lake Union the past few days.   We’ve confirmed it isn’t Steve Harvey’s N17481 (built 1944) from Kodiak as pictured.  Has anyone snapped a picture or recorded the N number?   It was sighted in and out of Lake Union Sunday around 7:00 PM and Monday around noon.

    Its a Grumman Albatross! N44HQ. Built in 1951 for search and rescue, now used by the satellite-based Wi-Fi company Row 44. Probably on Lake Union for the Boat Show. It has temporary mooring just off Southlake Park.
