A friend sent me a link to a nice looking Amphib on Facebook Marketplace in Frankenmuth MI. It has a 912 and looks nice in the pictures. Title is 2015 Avid Catalina $24,800. Certainly worth a look!

Yessiree. That's it. It looks nice and I like the fact that is has a 912. Hopefully its been built as light weight as it can be.

Yes Chris. 

I understand that to a large degree the lighter weight of the 582 balances out its lower power, and vice versa for the 912...

I really don't know. My Cat has a 582 but I haven't flown it yet. My first Avid, a MKIV had a 582. My current Avid has a 912. To me there is no comparison. The 912 wins hands down for power, much less maintenance and a certain peace of mind that doesn't come with a 582. The effect the 912 has on W&B is real but easily managed. The thing I do not know is the effect of the 912 additional weight on the W&B where it is placed on the Catalina.
