You have to pay money now to tie a canoe to your floats?

Not if you have an approval for the load you would like to carry. Otherwise, any external load on a fixed wing aircraft requires an approval, because that load could affect the flying characteristics of the aircraft, and that has to be evaluated.

I was told once, from an old learned AME, that the DHC-2 was originally certified for an external load and that if you have the boat rack bars, no STC is required.

I suspect the original certification for "external load" referred to a very specific canoe, but I never reviewed the paperwork myself. He said it was right there in the manual (which I have not read or seen).

The type certificate for the Beaver has provisions for carrying certain external loads but not with passengers on board where some of the STC's do.
