I generally don't use styrofoam, I use pool noodles. They're cheap as I get usually get them for $1.00-2.00 at Dollar stores and come in a variety of colors and diameters. One section is rated for 60 pounds of flotation. My boats are much heavier and I haven't lost one yet.

Any area large enough for the noodle to fit. I use pipe insulation foam.
