My question is how well will that combination work, especially when drilling through it for the bow & stern lines? If that styrofoam is not closed cell foam, there's now a whole bunch of channels in there for water to migrate through. And if it was closed cell, the heat which caused the eruption probably melted all the cells and created the same kind of channels. Be really sure to thoroughly seal any openings through the pours or you may end up with the dreaded black ick (or worse).
Was the engineer who suggested this the kind who drives trains? :-)
