Grumman Widgeon Owners Group

Widgeon Variants, there are many, so pay attention… Every widgeon is different, an early serial # may have been rebuilt with a later bow style. What is written below is for basic reference.

There are 2 basic hull types:

                 The G-44 / J4F has a flatter shallow "V" bow, serial #’s 1201-1400

                 The G-44A has a deeper "V" bow, serial #’s 1401-1477 and SCAN #1-41

                 Originally the Widgeon had a longer step with minimal step vents,

                 that small hole at the corner of the step.


                 Most hulls have had hull tunnel vents installed aft of the step.

                 There are a few airframes that don’t have them.
