Insulation on Engine cover

My foam insulation under my engine covering is falling like snow in Colorado. Anyone have any tips for a replacement product? Where did you find the material?

I just bought the I/O foil-backed noise reduction kit from overtons and plan to redo my insulation before it's warm enough to ski. There's a nice little how-to on the MBO Discussion Board

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Well Doug the Malibu people should know they are the loudest boats around. I was lucky my factory foam in the engine compartment held up well. I reglued 1 section in 12 years. 3m spray glue works well. Get those projects done now cause soon you'll be doing those Dad projects.

No doubt. Interestingly, it appears that Malibu does not offer the sound reinforcement as standard equipment, but as an option.

mine did the same and I removed it all and had LineX sprayed in.

Actually made a slight improvement over the foam, and looks MUCH better.

HUH? I can't hear you.... let me turn down the stereo in my Jeep

I'm Herculining my Jeep's tub this summer. Of course, I've been saying that for 2 years now. Maybe I'll actually get to it this summer!

JR--Can you give me a ball park figure of what the cost? Also, did it really make a difference quieting the engine. Thanks.
