Engine Insulation

If you look into the lead type you will find it comes in two sided or single side and has a metal film. some of it is so heavy you myst support it with a small wood or aluminum frame to keep it in place. it may even require a 1/4" piece of ply
(back board)with a few stainless screws through it and the board is attached to the engine room wall and the insulation hung on it. This makes it real quiet but allot of work.I have found that at higher engine RPM the problem is viverations and not so much the engine noise.Having a few locker lisd buzzing in harmony will drive you nuts.

SPM from www.sailorssolutions.com. Great product, self stick, easy to install, quiet. I put it in myself and it shut up my Northern Lights generator that is in the lazarette of my sailboat. All I can hear when it is running is the splash. Need I say more.

I''m in the process of installing sound insulation right now. I bought it from J.C. Whitney thru their on line catalog.

Soundown is at www.soundown.com and their website is packed with excellent technical tips. I am currently installing their 2" foam with a rigid plastic barrier in the middle. Heavy, but it appears excellent. Soundown is in Marblehead and Fort Lauderdale, but I purchased from a Seattle area distributor.

Kim, I''d recommend Soundown...I think they are in the New England area. Practical Sailor thought well of them, they offer multiple thicknesses with either lead or plastic inert mid-barriers (both perform equally BTW tho'' plastic is easier to work with and cheaper to ship), and the folks on the phone are ready to coach you thru the ''which'' and ''how much'' questions.

The difference this product made to our engine box was substantial.

The West Marine 2003 Catalog has "Noise Barrier Material" on page 327. I installed this material on my boat several years ago. It has done a great job of quieting down my Perkins 4-108!

Fairwinds,

Jim
