By that are you suggesting using velcro to stick the foam that I cut to
shape onto the footrest plates? Might just be me being a bit blind here but
I don't see what adjustment I need to make to the blocks once they are stuck
on anyway? Would velcro last as long as the adhesive suff?

What type of foam have you bought?

You should hopefully have small cell closed cell foam that shouldn't
expand. If you glue in the wrong type of foam and it expands in time,
you could end up distorting your boat.

I don't mean to stick my nose in but I'm just concrened that you don't
make a mess of your boat.

Its the same sort of stuff that's allready in the bot at the central
pillar - looks like one complete block of solid foam.

Yes. Hook AND Eye part of Velcro - eyes on the footplate, hooks fixed
to the foam. You may find that at some future date you need to adjust
the footspace, particularly if you want to loan your boat to someone
else - and it's relatively easy to remove foam pads if they're
velcro'd in.

the adhesive suff?


Probably not :-(

Is that for'ard or aft of the cockpit? Modern "thinking" says that
for'ard central pillars are "a bad thing" (TM), as they can be a
hazard causing foot entrapments when pinned :-(

I think that's already been done, which is "a good thing".
