Thanks Mary. That sound deadening material has been suggested to me as well. I haven't started the doghouse yet because I'm working on the AC...might replace with a newer Sanden, BTW, your doghouse is much more different than mine. I'll post pics soon.

Ok, well I called CW and they do not carry any engine compartment insulation whatsoever! I'll try going to a local small RV place or online, but the dealer may be the best source. Here's what I working with.

they have rolls of it cheap
Rv places and the larger electronics stores did not stock it

I have some of the weatherstrip if you would want it...

I bought weatherstrip to replace the seal around my doghouse ('83 310). Got it from Inland Andy for about $50. Then I found that my problem was just that the doghouse hinge wasn't secure. After I put in new screws I didn't need to use the weatherstrip.

If you want to buy it from me I'll take $25 plus about $5 for shipping...

When I redid my engine cover the interior insul(sim to what is found in the generator compartment)was good so I installed sound deadening lead based material(look at automobile sound equip suppliers on the web)on the top of the enclosure and then put carpet on top of that. I replaced the existing insul in the generator compartment with foil faced heat based insul also.

I am doing mine this weekend ! I ordered the material from a marine supply center!

1 inch of foam, heat shield foil on one side with the lead based quarter inch material
under the foil, plus tape recommended and some Sticker units. I have enough to also do the generator compartment and maybe some Under the floor areas if needed sometime ???

$150. or so for all with 3M spray glue ! Now I do need a new seal for around the engine compartment !!!

I'm still working on the heater core project and AC. When I'm done with that, I'll "top it off" with the doghouse lining. BTW, I got Dynamat and regular weatherstripping from Lowes just to be ready when the time comes.
Show us pics of your work guys!

I was re-reading this thread and Astrodokk hits it right square on the head. Don't over think this project guys. Go to your home improvement store and you'll find all you need.

I used solid foam insulation backed with foil. I used 3M adhesive and sealed all the joints with aluminum foil duct tape. That was 3 years ago.

The result was a tight, cool, quiet change for not very much cash out of pocket.

I agree with You Glen, this is the material I used and it is very similar to what the factory used in the late 80's only with the 1 inch foam. when we built our last Houseboat in 2000 this is what we lined the engine and generator compartment with. You can sit in our living room and not feel NOR hear the 15 KW Westerbeke Generator running so I knew it would work. We also do not winterize our engines because of the insulation properties and on Lake Cumberland the water seldom goes below 44 to 46 degrees.
Most of the Houseboat Manufacturers in the Somerset, Monticello area Use this type of material, at various thicknesses for a Home like feeling on the water even as the generator may run day in and day out while on the Lake. Reduces Vibration, Sound and helps to create a solid feeling, All the binifits we also want in our Couch as we travel down the Highway

Marine boat compartment boat Insulation barrier Vinyl/Foam enclosure composite insulation barrier is an effective treatment for airborne noise that radiates from the marine boat engine room, and other machinery. The standard marine composite consists of a layer of mass loaded vinyl sandwiched Between two layers of polyether fire retardant foam covered by a thin attractive vapor barrier facing. The composite is designed and manufactured specifically for attenuation of sounds from machines such as boat engine, generator compartment, pumps, and other marine equipment, which may have significant bass and mid-range frequency components. Our construction centers the acoustic vinyl between equal thickness of Foam, front and back. This configuration optimizes the mid and bass frequency sound isolation in comparison to other materials with only thin foam layer on the back-side; solely optimized for "tinier" high-frequency noise.

Place pins 20" on center. The products listed to your left are needed to complete insulation, read printable instructions.

Engine soundproofing Primary uses are gas engines and other applications, for diesel engine choose 2 lb per sq ft.

I have to compliment you on your knowledge of your product and engine rooms. I never thought I’d be able to achieve 95% reduction in sound. Excellent product and service, price also. I’ve recommended your site to several of my friends. Thanks for your help.

Thank you for the excellent follow-up on the sale in making sure I had everything I needed and explaining the installation procedures.
