what glue for attaching foam insulation to the cabin interior?

I'm replacing the carpeting in my vberth, gonna add a layer of pink closed cell foam underneath the new carpeting. I think a thick sealant type adhesive will be best, to cover the rough surface of the hull well and seal between the foam and the hull so that condensation doesn't become a problem. Will marine grade silicone do the job here, or would that lose its grip after only a few years? Is there anything less expensive that can be used? It has to be remove able fyi so epoxy or 5200 won't work.

What should I use to attach the carpeting to the foam?
