How much for the top of a 2 piece engine cover

I have the 2 piece engine cover and need to do the same. How much material should I order for the smaller job. Thanks, great write up and pictures.
Did anyone post any pictures of the NEW boats engine cover?

I have a 2000 Prostar 195 that has the split "dog house" and I also want to know if anyone has put sound insulation on The botttom half. It doesn't have it on it now, but was wondering if someone out there has done it.

Ordered mine today for my 2001 X9

I have a 2001 X9 with only 300 hours on it but the insulation is dust. If I touch the inside of the cover it leaves a hand print in it. It is also always falling down in the bottom of the hull and I am worried it will eventually plug up the bilge pump. If any one has done an engine box similar to mine I would love any advice, tips or pictures. Especially with the easiest way to remove the old stuff so the new McMaster-CARR 1" Heavy duty foil faced adhesive backed foam will stick like it should and last. Also if any one has any other info or tips about a 2001 X9 please let me know. This is my first Mastercraft and I love it like a child so I want to take care of it. Also does anyone know if a 2006 X9 has the same rear bench seat bottom as a 2001? Mine has a small crack and I want to get a seat cover from Mastercraft and thats the last year they have them available for.

Nice looking boat. That engine insulation is something I want to do to mine as well. Btw, is your boat hooked up to a crown Vic?

@ CC2MC, LOL, ya that's my work car. Have to have a car in front of it so no one gets the bright idea to take it for a drive without me. I had to use my truck and didn't feel like taking the boat around town.

Reading through this thread I saw a few posts on EZ Cool insulation. Can anyone post their thoughts on this product. MC Carr stuff is getting pricey.

Has anyone used the Carr + 2" Foam egg crate as the top layer? Using 3m super 77 spray adhesive to apply.

I would think it would provide additional sound dampening and also isolate different sound frequencies that the Carr does not. (lower = Carr and high = egg crate)

This is a technique I picked up on researching my car audio installation. Used Raamat dampening with a layer of Ensolite on top which dampens the higher frequencies. In fact, Ensolite might be a good top layer instead of the egg crate. It's peal and stick.

The inner engineer in me is contemplating doing this and taking measurements with a pocket RTA.
