I've heard it said the Cruzer is a better choice for a float plane. Talking to float plane guys, they stress being able to get off the water quickly is important. Seems like the STOL would do that better. I like the idea of going faster than a cub in the Cruzer. 

Any real world experience or comments? BTW, i assumed if i'm building the plane, i'll build the Zenair floats too.

Now that the Super Duty is out, has bigger gross and 180HP+ lycoming, could be the best overall. Thoughts?
