Fevered or unfevered, imagination is sometimes very enlightening .

I'm sure Burnelli had NASA do a few tests with the CBY-3, just to prove that the design was better than the standard "tube with wings" of regular aircraft. And you know anything with good loiter time and lifting capacity was pushed towards the Coast Guard.

Yes, although it would have been the NACA in those days. And the USCG hadn't yet adopted the pretty white and orange color scheme. I think, with a few exception, the pre-war scheme was natural aluminum or aluminum dope or enamel with orange-yellow wing upper surfaces and the vertical USCG red-white-blue rudder. As far as I know, USCG color schemes were identical to those of the Navy during the war, although there may have been some local variations.

I will defer to others on plausible wartime NACA schemes. Photographs seem to indicate natural metal or service camouflage during the war and natural aluminum, white, red, or yellow after the war. The X-planes are well documented. One could extrapolate a Burnelli NACA scheme from those, I imagine.

I wonder if the US Navy looked at the CBY-3 for transport or anti-submarine work...

If the Australians, Japanese, Papua Niugini, NACA, various Alaskan and Canadian entities, the USCG, and (in the Real World) the Free French, why not the U.S. Navy. Would look spiffy in the 1943 three-toned scheme, in my opinion.

Methinks she was designed primarily to be a bush plane and northern transport . How about an airforce arctic scheme, though the coastguard scheme (yellow stripe) would be interesting too.
