Re: Best way to soundproof engine compartment?

There are 2 kinds of marine engine compartment insulations. One is for gas, the other for diesel. I just re-did my doghouse... it's not that hard. Good sturdy putty knife took off the old stuff. Sanded down the old glue spots with big grit paper. Use spray glue in a can MADE FOR FOAM. Found a can at my local hardware store. The new insulation (as mentioned) is pricey. Don't skimp if you can, you'll be glad you didn't. Cuts with a good heavy pair of scissors (might have to borrow your neighbor's jocko kid though) :-)
