Of course you can, because Styrofoam can float on top of water for a long time. A lot of newer boats have Styrofoam in the bottom for added buoyancy if you do add it to your boat, be sure that there is no moisture in the bottom of boat when you do it if not completely dry , moisture will be trapped and eventually rot any wood that was used in the boat's construction.
