    engine compartment sound proofing-gctid400137

    I know there was a thread on this before and I even had a link saved for it, but the link comes up no good

    I have searched but still can't find the info I am looking for.

    There was information as to where to purchase double foil sided 1" thick insulation.

    I have googled it and keep coming up with links to Dynamat which seems to be way more expensive as I remember the other stuff being.

    Look up fisheries supply, sound insulation, mid layer is high density and heavy, foil on one side, very effective.

      I think Autozone, Pep Boys, etc have a similar product to Dynamat. Rockhead used it in his 195 a few years back. much improvement.

        +1.

        I think you will find that 1" thick is too much. The most widely available (in auto parts stores) foil-backed felt is about 1/4 in thick. I put on two layers.

            mine had sound proofing from the factory, did they save there now too? Or did they only do it for the 40th anniversary LS model???

              You have now got me thinking.

              I love the sound of the 4.3ltr V6 thumping away behind us as we go along. At idle I think it is pretty quiet and when you are hopping along the wind and water noise almost covers up any engine noise.

              I am not sure if I need/want to add sound proofing?

              I will take a lot more notice next time i'm out now mind you.

                Our 3.0L's are notoriously noisy little engines, I think mine sounds like a tractor engine. Not nearly as nice as a V6 or V8. I never minded the 5.0L in my 245 but the 3.0L has me reading all these sound-deadening threads...

                  if you have the v6 and are only looking for a small improvement in sound deadening and you don't want to spend too much money the Blue Magic Spray rubber would be a good solution. I used it on my 3.0L and I would say it cut sound by about 10%. I was hoping for more like 30%, as people have stated, the 3.0L is a noisy little engine. Might be a good alternative and it comes out looking really nice.PS - If you use the Blue Magic, buy 2 cans. You need to do 2 coats and each can is exactly enough for one thorough coat, I also then extra protected mine with 2000 degree high temp paint to be safe, overkill I know, but thats the way I am

                    Strange - the older style ones like my 2005 Classic already come with the insulation. Must have stopped when they went from the wood covers to the fiberglass/plastic covers.

                      That looks really sharp, I will investigate the Blue stuff to see if I can get it down here.

                          Looks like you never had an old 2-stroke OB! Compared to my last boat the "new" one just whispers with it's 3.0l. I have to admit, the old wooden box style has a lot of soundproofing in and on it. Fiberglass with close to nothing will naturally vibrate and transfer noise a lot more.

                            Juergen, I have to agree. My old 83 wooden box cover next to Rockhead's new 2007 195 (fiberglass) a few years ago....he was pissed, hence his soundproofing. Pepboys "Dynamat" and some spray adhesive and he was happier. My 83....hard to tell it was running. lol.
