Re: Increasing flotation

Foam on the inside will do nothing. In order to have it float higher - weight, outboard and all else equal - you will need to displace more water for the weight. So, in reality, you want more volume for the same weight. In essense a bigger beach ball to float the same amount of weight better. In reality; less weight at the rear or a boat with a bigger rear to support that weight.
