You can get the sheets w/ Foil face on flame resistant foam etc. made for the heat of engine compartments and noise control. It's not cheap


This one isn't bad in price,
Heat Wave - Acoustic Thermal Insulation and Engine Insulation Material

We were neighbors, and you were one of the few people I knew, if I have you correctly. You're on B dock, you were a nurse, you lost your lovely bride two years ago to cancer, and you're working on a townhouse in East Boston. Do I have the right person?

I was on C dock, the guy who never got a cover up, only the frame (I finally got both up last winter) on a 28' boat no longer called Fiasco (as she generally was, in so many regards, and I disliked being reminded!)

I summer on a hook in Duxbury Bay but she (now Nanagram) was in such tough shape, after three years living aboard without hauling, that I put her in the Brownell yard this winter for a mini-refit next spring and summer.

I plan to sail south mid- or late-summer and aren't coming back. I've had enough snow and diabetes is ravaging my body. I want to sail south while I can still read charts and have feet for flippers.

Sometime, come spring, I'd love to catch up. Maybe coffee at Sorelle?
