This is what I used and you WONT BELIEVE how incredible it cut down on noise. You can talk normal at 34mph in my boat! It helps if its warm, clean your inside with Acetone or thinner, use a little roller to get into the tight corners and mold the curves, sharp box cutter and get a roll of tape to mask the seams. Good stuff!!! Two rolls should get it done IIRC.

What is the size of the sheet? How many rolls did you use?

Has anyone retrofitted this onto an older boat?? Say one like my 1987 PS190?? It's just a hard shell on the inside, and it reverberates a lot of noise. Anything I can do to cut down on that is appreciated. It'd be nice to hear the V8 burble from the back, rather than the engine/drivetrain.

Motorbox insulation completed with Cool it Thermo Tec acoustical sound and heat control.

First picture: Motorbox after factory foam removed.
Second picture: Motorbox cleaned with Goo Off and Acetone. (This step will eat the weak...what a pain!)
Third picture: First section applied to base.
Fourth picture: Build up of walls to small shelf
Fifth picture: Walls completed to shelf

Initial review: I really like the appearance, it seems to have very good self adhesive that should hold up in its environment, pretty easy to cut and shape, foil face seems very durable, stiffened up the box but definitely added weight, you will need the roller to apply well. Adhere only 1/2 of each piece at a time.

No acoustical review yet.
