I got some recycled stuff that was much firmer than the usual grade to do some club boats with, I shall see if I can find where we got it from.

Before you cover the foam, give it a few turns in "industrial clingfilm" - the stuff they wrap pallets with. This will help prevent the foam from becoming waterlogged.
