Default Sea Dancer convert to electric motor

I have a Sea Dancer, a .60 size float plane that used to fly well on .90 4 stroke. I want to convert to an electric motor, but don't know what electric motor to get. It has a 70 inch wingspan and weighs about 9 lbs, (with motor). I only have clearance for 12" prop. any suggestions as to what motor and prop will work?

Thanks Steve Collins a lot for your response! However, I have been told told that a prop as small as 12" will over heat and burn up that motor, which is too bad, since I do already have a E-Flight 90. Hacker has a motor that may work (A50-14S V4, 425kv). I put the data into Hacker's online analyzer and it came out that I could run a 12 x7 electric prop on that motor. However, I am not an engineer and want to be certain that that is the right motor. Does anyone have an opinion on my problem?
