Default can you identify this model sea plane ??

This is for a friend of mine. He bought this plane built. It had kraft epuipment in it so i assume it's from the 70's or 80's. it's a 40 size plane.

WE NEED THE CG !! if anyone knows the c.g. or can tell us how to calculate it....this would be appreciated greatly by us.

One thing to remember with a pusher engine: They overheat unless they are flying.  Revving them up on the ground is just a way to cook them. Be quick about setting the needle valve.
