I've put quite a bit on here recently about upholstery. Why don't you use the proper foam.
About 85% of upholsterer don't because people don't like paying a little extra for something they can't see.
It's false ecconomy give it a weekend and you're already waterlogged and that's how it will stay.
I've got DRYFAST foam on my old girl and she's the same as the day I put it in

Hello mate, how are you doing?

I'm actually reusing the original foam and covers as it's all in good condition, but the bases rotted out as the water couldn't escape. I may even have dryfast foam in there originally as the bases had rotted from the outside.
The faces against the foam weren't rotten but I couldn't get a screw to hold securely enough in what was left.

Hello mate still at it. It's a wonder terrorist haven't discovered cancer treatment as a torture. I'd tell them anything straight away
Dry fast is very light and stays that way. There is a nylon base material but some of it is brittle when I find out the name I'll let you know
