Dealing with Engine Room Noise

Jeff and I have designed a new wooden toggle that will help to press the engine room doors closed and hold them tightly against the newly added foam gaskets. We hope this will reduce the engine room noise below in the cabin. The newer Island Packets have the engines placed lower in the hull making them more quiet. This 1994 boat is old school and needs some work on the decibel reduction program. This should do the trick. Now to add another layer of sound proofing to the doors. (post added via email posting!)
