Im in the process of restoring an early lark. On inspection of the buoyancy tanks through an small access hole made for repairs under the center thwart seat ive noticed that the foam blocks inside the tanks dont appear to fill the space fully. Can any one advise if the foam filled the space entirely and has just disintegrated over the years or were they just blocks added for additional buoyancy. Many thanks for any advice

It’s just enough foam to keep the boat afloat (barely) if the buoyancy tank gets holed.
