I'm not leaving it in the water. It would be placed underneath the seats of my boat and used as a safety precaution should my boat turn over.

I also believe the Styrofoam can be coated with something to prevent water from being absorbed.

AFAIK styrofoam doesn't biodegrade in any practical terms, it just crumbles into smaller pieces which eventually get ingested into something or collected somewhere.

I wonder if a watercop would write up a separate violation for EACH crumb that falls off?
