Hull Foam Removal?
Was curious if anyone removes the foam inside the hull to allow more air space for cooling with flo rites? Is there anything I would need to worry about if I did not real sure on how much better it would be but considering it.

I would be concerned with removing the foam, you will sink if your carbon seal or something goes. Why not put them on the black plastic like most people do?

They will be going in plastic just curious with the added air volume if worth doing, I know some of the Kawi guys do this was not sure bout us. In addition I will be adding DG Gold Audio speakers to the front footwell angled part and want the bigger size so instead of cutting a little off I figured I would see if I could just remove all of it to allow more air space.

I would be very nervous about taking that out - it is a major element of the floatation, should you take on water. Poor trade in my opinion for just more air volume. You'll only win point zero zero zero of a temp drop if at all, as the air will still heat up. Cut away a minimal amount for your speakers and leave the rest.

Both had to recovered by divers
