What kind of stapler would you use, I may get a neighbor’s 8’er and it’ll need to be redone. 

I am not sure what that are called older than a box stapler. I was thinking to find a used one cheap, but that doesn't look like it'll happen.

Pop rivets work.


Thanks I'm leaning that way. It'll be the cheapest and easiest, and It'll be about the easiest to remove later on.

I do have a new idea that I'm stewing over; Remove the live well/cooler and use that access to remove the water logged foam. Then, fill the cavity with empty plastic bottles. This will give emergency buoyancy and also be light weight. I don't see any reason it wouldn't work, and work well. The foam isn't structural in that area.


The only downside is that the plywood under the floor area is likely rotted, though the foam is not water logged as best I can tell from feeling through the livewell access hole. That foam doesn't seem to need to be replaced.

I have removed the cooler for investigative purposes. Pictures will be forthcoming.
