It is unlikely that increasing the foam thickness will have a significant impact on audible noise.

There are many paths for audible noise and focusing on one won't have the desired result.

One thing that may have a big impact at a low cost is to locate and properly seal direct / unobstructed noise paths, such as holes, cracks or gaps, assuming those are not required for proper / safe boat operation.
