fitting out the hull

I have a 15'1" fiberglass RiverHawk w/9.9hp4cycleHonda outboard and I am looking for design ideas to make it into a long range river cruiser with enough floatation to guarantee it never sinks. (I turned it over once, thanks to too much hydrofoil on the anti-cavitation plate...it bobbed up and down with 2 feet of the bow sticking out of the water.)

Anyone with new ideas or tried and true methods please respond. My current plans are to raise and flatten the floor with foam underneath and to bolt in an air-tank, just ahead of the motor. All serious suggestions will be appreciated.
