Introducing SPM™ Auxiliary Sailboat Engine Compartment Sound Proofing Peel & Stick Tiles

The iron wind is an unpleasant necessity for most sailors. Aside from the fact that you are not actually sailing, you are accosted by the shear brutality of that noisy SOB below. No, not him/her. You know what I mean, that loved and hated device that is driving you forward. Still stumped? I mean the diesel, damn it, man, the diesel! Read on...

Think of how pleasant cruising would be if you didn't have to listen to your diesel hammering away in your engine compartment. Why put up with it? That was our thought when we first took on this project.

We searched for the best sound dampening technologies available and found SPM's formula currently being used in engine compartments in the trucking industry. We were very concerned about the durability of the flimsy multi-layered products sold nowadays to boaters. It just doesn't make sense to put a soft thin layer of thin metallic fabric facing your engine. It tares and crumbles as you already may know and becomes an ineffective mess after only a few years.
On the other hand, a modern truck's cab is quiet and comfortable. That's kind of amazing considering there is a 500+ horsepower monster on the other side of the bulkhead. It's soundproofing is durable, stays put and most importantly very sound deadening. Basic acoustical engineering and good polymer chemistry solved the problems. Why not solve the noise problem in your beloved sailboat the same way?

Here's what we came up with. You'll be amazed at what you don't hear!!

Sailor's Solutions took this high tech acoustical product from "under hood" and added a rugged easy to clean surface on one side and a very aggressive "peel and stick" adhesive on the other side. We then die-cut it into one-foot squares for ease of installation in tight spaces.

I couldn't believe my ears! How did I put up with that noise for so long? It was easy to install too!

Some lifestyle benefits after installing SPM in your boat:
  1. You can call orders below and know you will actually be heard. (No more excuses!)
  2. WARNING: The diesel can't drown out your obnoxious comments so be careful what you mumble. Your crew will hear you.
  3. You will be able to listening to the radio or even music while steaming along like a gentleman.
  4. Your temper will improve dramatically (we hope).
  5. No wind? So what, your quality of life isn't going to suffer anymore.
  6. Enjoy the new clean and professional look of your engine compartment.
