Flying style, plane type, elevation..... all come into the equation when selecting and engine. I took this picture the other day, the closest plane (GP Escapade) is almost as heavy as the Beaver (just behind the Escapade), and it flies alright with a old tired .61 Webra blackhead!
The Beaver, for me, got me into the gas engine planes. The gasser sure is different. I realized that I need to hear, as much as see my plane to fly. That is probably why so many newbies have issues (pronounced crashes) with electric powered planes. This is where I better quote my mentor, "you don't want to rely on the engine to fly, use the wing", which makes those dead stick landings managable. This, of course is not always the case, but because I started with e-gliders, I have only had one really bad pilot error landing. Tip stalls with planes that fly like helicopters isn't unusual. It's just real expensive.
You asked about floats, sorry I have never flown a float plane. I am going to build a set this winter, and practice on the snow. This seems like a logical progression to me, as I don't own a recovery boat!
