I would think that designing a seaplane hull would be right up your alley. Getting the step in the hull in the right location would take some research, but your wings look to be already well suited. Your turned down winglets could be pontoons. I can imagine some good ground effect landings over water.

Yeah, could take the FZ3 design and make the fuselag hull a bit higher so it acts like a float...
