L 'Edge, Blackfly, Silverbirch all seem to put some kind of foam side panel in their cockpits. Not so much in strap-outfitted boats. I'm assuming the reason is extra buoyancy; is there more to it?

Further to Wendy's comment, boats not equipped with bulkhead outfitting often require more in the way of customizing: anchors, tiedowns, etc. -- a good reason for not expecting the factory to foam the side-walls. That said, once your outfitting is complete, I think it's a good idea to add side-wall foam.
