Engine Room Insulation


BTW, I can''t seem to navigate the website for the soundproofing tiles. From the reviews, I''d like to talk to the company - but the image maps on their site aren''t working (I''m on a mac, quite possibly the reason - always something!!) Any chance you could pass along the URL for the contact page, or, just their contact info?

Thanks so much,

Look at the West Marine Catalog page 341. I used this material on my boat and it did a good job of reducing engine noise from my ol'' Perkins!

It is fairly easy to install. I used contact cement for vertical surfaces plus screws and large fender washers to hold up the material on overhead surfaces.

Get the seam tape to give it a professional finish on the edges.

Engine Room Insulation

Curious about the type of insulation used in engine rooms for sound shielding. you know the stuff, usually silver on the outside, flame retardant etc...

Wondered where I might be able to purchase this stuff. Or if anyone has found any successful alternatives.

My boat is a 1969 Morgan 33 CCA - and the engine room is not insulated for sound. Would like to at least insulate the access areas as I''ve found just putting a towel over them makes a fair difference...and that Yanmar likes to make itself heard - wouldn''t mind quieting it down a bit.
