Float plans for Slow Stick?

Anyone know of proven floats plans (bluecor?) or a source for floats for the GWS Slow Stick? My Brother lives on a lake, and would like to be able to interchange wheels and floats on his new Christmas Slow Stick.

Thanks!

Here is a set of I build specifically for the Slow Stick and have flown them extensively off water. They are made from the very inexpensive and widely available white insulating foam. A flat bottom version is here. Currently I am using the floats for flying off snow. I also have a design made from the foam taken from Sturdyboard(Depron) that I plan to post in the near future.

Dubonnet,
I cant get to that site either. I think they might not be in business anymore.
I cant say enough about JimSp original design using the single pontoon design and out riggers.
this has been the most successful and fun flying plane on the water for many of us.
there are 2 ways you can build it,
original way was to build it from 3 mm depron to create a hollow pontoon. I also used the solid method , but cutting from a single block of foam, you can get 1 inch foam at HD and 3M 77 sheets together to create a big block , then use a hotwire or bandsaw to cut the top profile , then rotate the block 90 degrees and cut the front view profile, the result will be the intersection of the two profiles and your pontoon. glass and PU or use monokote to finish
let me know if you understand , i will try to get some pics if you need
