I plan to insulate my engine room/compartment with it this season. Has anyone here used it on a boat?
I bought Dynamat to do my engine compartment last year but never got to it. I have it on my schedule this year. I like the thinness of it because my engine compartment is really tight already. I'm thinking of adding more to the outside of the engine compartment if I'm not satisfied. Adding an inch all around inside my engine compartment is just not practical.
