    Has anyone used t92 foam in a canoe, kayak, or small rowboat?

    It is perfectly doable to use that foam. Please do check the strain properties, but I believe the T92 is getting close to PVC foam.

    it also is good in FST properties (fire-smoke-toxicity), which is not important for canoes, but very desirable for transportation.
