Engine compartment insulation


New member
Satisfying offseason project completed! Since I bought the 2004 204SSi one year ago, the engine insulation has been literally falling apart. The boy and I scraped off the old, then applied a new sheet of UXCELL Car sound damper. I'm hoping this is one area where an automotive product can be used for the boat. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01I4F0J76?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details

One word of caution - it's super sticky. Parts of it stuck to my fingers and ripped a tiny layer off of the material.
Overall, looks much better though!

I've only had it out one time, but no, it's about the same. If anything, I think it might be louder. I'm guessing the open foam that was there was better able to 'catch' the sound waves?
