Sound Proofing Engine Room

More
12 years 1 month ago #1170 by Bryan Haas
I have Hull 120 down to the bare wood. No Engine, no wires, no pipes, etc.. So I though I would add some sound proofing and was curious if anybody has some ideas or experience on what works. I have the Original Ford Lehmen engine being rebuilt, it's in great condition, to go back in. It will also have a generator in the room.

Thanks,

Bryan

If you're just looking for ideas, there is fiberglass mat that goes under the hood and on the firewalls of cars for the same purpose and can be sourced from auto parts suppliers in bulk. It's not too aesthetically pleasing though. I'd try one of the many sound dampening products that exists for the aftermarket audio market, IE dynamat, sswedge, etc. It'll be expensive, although it works wonders for sound dampening. There is a product at Lowe's for roofing that is very similar and considerably cheaper which can be used, although it's not as refined and can give off a tar smell when exposed to high temps. As with any dampening materials, try and find things that aren't flammable, or are flame resistant. Most of this stuff is going to keep the heat in too, which is an added benefit. I haven't tried any of these in a marine application, although I do have extensive experience with them in automotive apps.

Also, very clean looking engine room. Nice work.

Best of luck to you.

Thank you for the ideas. I will most likely use some automotive insulation in some areas. Unfortuneately the engine room doesn't quiet look as good any more as the picture was before the centre fuel tank came out.
