NEED advice...steel boat insulation

I recently purchased a Canadian Northern 35 steel yawl and am beginning the process of removing the old custom interior. When I bought it the owner told me she was insulated, but I have discovered that the entire thing was done with Great Stuff Expanding Foam (from a can). Is this OK? I am worried about it soaking up the condensation from the hull... I have never heard of anyone using off the shelf spray foam to insulate a hull...only for spraying in gaps around windows and doors.

I am worried that I am going to have to scrape all of it off....

Jason
