Re: Acoustic Insulation for engine room?

I installed soundown (salem ma) 25 yrs ago around the engine box on my Apache 37 when I replaced the gas engine with a Volvo diesel (much louder). Made huge difference...can hardly hear the engine running. The only disadvantage is the weight of the wall that has to be occasionally removed for winterization. But, a great solution. Hope that helps. Soundown - peace and quiet for architectural, marine, & industrial applications
