Taylorcraft on 27" floats wont take off

Hey guys just tried to maiden my tcraft and I could not get it to come up out of the water.I am useing 27 inch balsa floats .I have the balance point of the wing about an inch forward of the step of the floats .from the prop to the begining of the floats there is approx 6 inch of float .The only thing I can think of is that somehow it is to far back on the floats.When its in the water it sits pretty level maybe a little tilted back.I wasnt able to take any pics but I will try to tomorrow.Any ideas would be appreieated.I am useing the 480 motor with the 12-6 prop so power should not be the issue
