Ever seen a thick foam floor for a bucket boat? HELP!

I bought a used raft last year simply because it was a great deal. It's a bucket boat and came with a frame, trailer, etc. Anyway, it has a thick, black, two inch foam that was cut to the size of the floor. Totally removable, and obviously cut from some larger piece and made to fit. IT IS AWESOME! But it is also starting to deteriorate and I want to replace it and get some more for my other bucket. You can stand on it fine, keeps most water away, holds a cooler easier, etc. But I can't find it. I have talked with NRS, a few guides, etc. and no one knows where to get it. But they all seem to want to get it because it plain kicks butt. Anyone know?

Thanks.

Ethafoam. You shoul be able to find up to 2" x 48" x 108" sheets fairly easily.

Get yer self over to Andy and Bax in Portland, call ahead, you should be able to buy a whole sheet, but it won't be too cheap. I had a big chunk in one of my bucket boats for standing while fishing, got it there. they had the full sheets 4X8' but it was a few years ago when I last checked.
