    You're going to want to look into a "Bush" aircraft. My choice was the Piper PA-18 Super Cub.

    You can have it outfitted with heavy-duty landing gear or seaplane floats.

      The Pa-18 is Tinyl it wouldn't fly with weight of floats. And, they are Antiques from-the 'Forties. May as well get  a 1935 Grumman. we Have a  1947 PA-18 at school,it is Not a Cub. Cubs are canoe seating. Its  propeller is from 1942./.We practice fabric repairs on it.

    Avid Flyer or Kitfox or maybe an experimental Cub clone, since they're a lot cheaper to maintain than production aircraft.
