Yeah, the only problem, like it said in the pdf, is that if the foam sits waterlogged for a long time, it can cause the foam adhesive to pull up and not stick, so you may need to "re-adhere the foam blocks". I'm kind of curious about the inside mine, but i'm not sold on cutting out a hole.

I don't have any evidence of mine being waterlogged like sloshing or anything, but I suppose the foam could be full of water like sponges.

Mine seems kind of heavy, but I haven't tried weighing it, either.

I replaced them in our bayliner this year, its pretty simple. much better than stepping in it and almost breaking an ankle when your going for a tripped downrigger pole.
