Seems there was one prototype with floats, but I've been unable to track down a photo. I'm not entirely sure the source is accurate.
"All Albacores were landplanes, though the first prototype was later fitted experimentally with floats to determine its prospects for possible catapult operations. Tests were made by MAEE pilots at Hamble early in 1940 and were not markedly successful." from the Putnam Fairey Aircraft.
Thanks. So my source was only semi-accurate, but there was briefly an Albacore floatplane, which could have been the source for this drawing.
