Default sig Aqua-Star electric conversion question

Hi,
I just purchased a Sig Aqua-Star sea plane.
It has a wingspan of 40"
and has recommended engines size of: .049 to .060
Finished weight will be approx 30oz or less.

I want to make this an electric sea plane.
I have not done done anything with electrics yet so I am a little in the dark about sizing electric motors.
I would appriciate it if someone could give me some information about what size electric motors would be equvilant to the .049 to .060 for this plane.

Thanks in advance.

there are a lot of threads on this plane, including e conversions, do some searches and they will pop up. The biggest problem this plane has is a lack of hull displacement resulting in a low position in the water and difficulty ROWing. Anything over 22oz will likely have problems. There are also a lot of threads over on the other rc forum.

Ok,
I made a decision I plan on purchasing a e-flit brushless Park 370,1360 kv.
I will post to let everyone know how it works.
