How much styrofoam bouyancy do I need?
I pulled out an extremely large amount of styrofoam pellets out of the front of my boat to work on the bottom of my 16''er. I''m curious about whether I should put it all back or not. It was alot of work to get out, and I have a feeling that most of it wasn''t needed. Most of the boat is wooden, the centerboard is a 3/8" piece of Aluminum, and the rudder is similar. Is there an easy way to estimate how much styrofoam I''ll need? Are there some good suppliers of cheap styrofoam blocks, rather than the pellets? Thanks for the help.
