90 percent of my sole is foamed with no limber holes . Just make sure you build good sole to hull joints so
they don't leak.

. . and if you do limber holes, that's a good occasion to overdrill/fill/drill, you don't want any spots with raw wood in the bilges. The holes may end up an eighth of an inch above the bottom due to the added resin mixture, but that's not a big deal.

Thanks for the replies Topwater and Pee wee.

I think I have decided to go with foaming everything that doesn't have an opening till I use enough foam to keep her close to the surface.

I'm with you on this, seems like a smart plan to me. :)
