..... keep the bulkhead .
Use 2 part marine grade (2 lb.) closed cell polyurethane expandable foam for replacement .
A standard kit for a canoe would have 1 qt. part A , and 1 quart part B ... mix and pour (read directions / check out "how to's" on-line) . With the 1 qt.(A) + 1 qt.(B) kit you will get aprox. 2 cubic feet after expansion is complete . That sounds like just pour 1/2 the mix in each end , but caution here ... you need to know if each end can hold 1 cu.ft. expanded foam , you don't want to blow the ends/bulkheads out , and there is a way to know how much you can get in there before hand .
If you want to know I'll tell you how , just ask .
