I see these 2 foam pads around the seating area inside the hull in my R 11, but only 1 in my R13. When I asked my dealer, he said it was probably stuffed in there to add support during shipping.

They interfered with mounting a handle right behind the seat from within (had to switch frim nuts to rivets).

Should I request a pad to match the lone pad in my R13 hull? Thanks.

The foam is "Positive Flotation" as a safety measure.

The foam amount an location varies by model, so no need to add more to the 13. We sometimes use it as a dual function for supporting seat or side rail areas on specific models.

Dealers should know this stuff.

Hello Matt,

How many blocks of foam are there supposed to in a Revo 11?

Just curious...

It adds rigidity to the hull. The small amount of cubic inches will do next to nothing in terms of flotation if the hull fills with water.
