My insulation finally completely gave up the ghost. Took the rest of the funky stuff off and I have to say that now it is substantially louder inside the boat. Since the kit is no longer available at Overtons I have been looking local and came up with this stuff. http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?actio...025&lpage=none Seems like it would work perfect using the 3m spray adhesive and foil tape at the seams.

Cameron,
Do you know someone that has done this or what brings you to say this is the stuff? Saw Overton's is out of there kit and it seems like it may hold water (fiberglass appearance) so I am looking at options. Dynaliner appears to be another perspective option... just checking...

Check out this insulation from McMaster Carr:

I just installed it in my motor box and was on the lake today for the first time with it. I used the 1 inch skinned self-adhesive stuff. Time will tell how the adhesive holds but it sure is quiet. I can hear the exhaust rumble better now.

Oh and I got some glue remover from the automotive paint store that made removing the old stuff a snap!

Overton's is sold out so I started looking for other options that may be better?

Never said it was "the stuff" just said that it is what I will be using since I have read nothing but good things about it on a couple of truck/car forums that use it for quieting down the cab.

If you want to go with a less expensive route, BrianM recently installed this stuff. Looks to be a great buy and a great replacement.

As Sodar said I did the stuff he posted a link to. Overall I am very happy. The material itself is thin but the noise/insulating properties seem to be about the same as the original foam. The price was definitely right at a total of less than $75 including the insulation, tape and 3m adhesive. Installation was pretty easy and the material was easy to work with. One roll is just enough to do the engine box with just a little left over. I would recommend it.

Here's a pic of my installation using the foam I mentioned above from McMaster-Carr.
