The CG needs to be correct according to the wing and tail dimensions, not the step.

The step should be approx 1/2" behind the CG.

Do it the other way round with the step in the wrong place and you may have an unflyable plane.

A CG calculator should give you the approximate position, (starting position, then adjust to suit how you like it to fly) --

Here's a thread with the dimension --

Please ignore my lack of Seamaster knowledge , I assumed a 'float plane' to have separate floats. On seeing pictures of the Seamater, I think of those types as a flying boat
