Bernard Upton is about to remove all the cork and strengthening strips from the underside of his 3 engine covers.
He wants me to procure 11 mm neoprene or Polyzote to cover the ENTIRE underside of the engine covers, measuring 1620mm by 660 mm. He hopes this will give more sound-proofing and a better watertight seal. He is looking for a compression of the neoprene of around 2-3mm at the edges when the covers are clamped down.
Does anyone have any comments on his plan please?
Does anyone know of neoprene or polyzote suppliers please.

Whatever material is used it will need to be either fire proof or fire resistant to a suitable specification. That probably means using proper marine engine soundproofing materials.

Dom – Thank you for your tip about Bradford Rubber. They supplied some excellent fire resistant neporene at a very reasonable price. I took it to Bernard in a suitcase and he is working on it now.
Trevor – Thank you for your comment too.
