This plane has such a long fuselage and low H-stab that you might need more than just a forward planing surface... you need enough height at the step so the plane can rotate back for take-off without dunking the tail or have WIG-effect on the H-stab, thus pushing the nose back down. 5-8 degrees of rotation is typical.

You might be able to use just the plastic bottom of a single GWS float and glue it directly to your fuselage, or make a foam (FFF) cradle that fits inside the GWS shell that mates to your fuselage and hooks on with rubber bands.
