The museum already has another engine to fit and has recovered some correct floats from a greenhouse in the area where they were being used to store heating oil.

...I read it was removed by the Germans when the aircraft crashed in '42 as part of a salvage attempt before it sank.

Is they had time to salvage an engine and float, but didn't have time to hook a boat to it and tow it to a dock or even the shoreline?
