What kind of spray foam do you use? just for my future reference of course.

you dont use spray foam. you use cutup pool noodles. glued into place. you can custom cut them to wedge them in the nooks

I used spray foam in the SV and it seems to be working great.
Boat has been a sub a few times and has been over about a dozen times just this spring and summer.
The SV will take alot more then people think.
You just have to be willing to get wet here and there.
I have had it in 1 to 2 foot waves.

Monster brad, you've been lucky. Any time the expandable foam gets warm, it starts expanding again. I would get as much of it out of your boat as you can and replace it with a more stable floatation
