Foam in Rudder?

Anybody have any idea what is the wt/cubic foot for the foam that is used in the rudder. I am repairing and rewelding the armature in the rudder, plan to reuse the skins but the foam is toast.

I used the waterproof foam in a can from Home Depot. It shaped nice, and I did a finish cut with a regular wood saw, and then glassed it.

You could try talking to Foss Foam about that information The Foss Company Makes Quality Sailboat Rudders and Dagger Boards that Can Be Shipped Anywhere in the World from Newport Beach, California . They make rudders for lots of boats.
