True flotation only comes from displacement or sealed air chambers. Unfortunately foam does not provide either displacement or sealed air chambers. Foam will only slow the rate at which your boat sinks.
Foam in the floor is like a condom. Eventually you will have a leak and it will bite you in the azz. FOAM IN A DUCK BOAT FLOOR IS USELESS. Scraped that crap out of my boat the day I bought it. One more reason why duck boats are built and not bought.

Dangerous Misinformation, foam WILL NOT increase capacity or the depth of draft. It is only there for emergency purposes. Fill a cup with foam and float it next to a cup with air, often the foam cup floats lower due to being heavier, now fill them both with water and the empty cup sinks, while foam cup still floats.

X2 I never could understand the need for foam under the floor.
