Does anyone know anywhere I can buy the Soundown underlay? I have contacted Sundown (twice) by phone and e-mail but still with no response.
I did notice this product from Cyber Bridge Marine. Is this the Sundown product? Sure looks like it.

Thanks, Jimb. I've ordered some underlay from Cyber Bridge Marine, and if that doesn't work I'll try Soundown again.

Johnathan:

I just replaced all of the engine sound insulation (removed engine and all tanks) and added the carpet underlay from Soundown. It made a huge difference.

Contact Gary Kissal at gkissal@soundown.com He was a great help. I also ordered and installed the gaskets for the engine hatch.

Hi Mark,

Sounds like you have done a lot of work this winter on Brandywine! Did you put any sound insulation under port side bench seat? I was considering a layer of carpet underlay along the bottom of the storage area. Can you tell me wha you used for hatch gasket material? I just used foam insulation gasket and it did make a difference.

Quick update on my sound insulation efforts; I ordered what I thought was Sundown underlay from "Cyber Bridge Marine". They sent me a receipt, but never shipped the product, have a phone that only rings busy and a customer service line that says "leave a message". I assume they have gone out of business. Fortunately, it appears they never charged my credit card. A strange episode. I'll try Soundown directly, as I see their contact info above.
I also ordered some insulation material from West Marine, that goes on the underside of the deck. Installation is a bit involved, as securing pins must be epoxied on first. I'll start that project shortly.
Very interested to know what you've used as gasket material for the hatch covers; I'm getting a lot of vibration and noise from glass rattling against glass.

Good Morning, Rick. After the tanks were removed, I installed new sound insulation under the entire wheelhouse cabin sole including the port side settee. In addition, sound insulation was installed on the forward and rear bulkheads and against the hull from the tank supports up to engine air vents. The insulation under the hatches is relatively recent. I did install the carpet underlay in one of the compartments under the settee. The other has the air conditioner. Soundown has an on-line catalog page (PDF) of their gasket material. I purchased sort of "D" shaped material for the engine hatch. I just installed a simple gasket on the small generator hatch.

Good luck with your project -

Mark
