i use a piece of 3/4 inch Styrofoam with the foil backing then i sandwich with 1/8 inch wood like the stuff wooden doors are made of and use silicone around edges and a lot of coats of paint to waterproof. my boat stays out in the elements and it usually wont last longer than a year the rain finds a way in. any ideas i need it lightweight and not a fire starter..it is bolted straight to front of generator and helps a lot on noise.

I've heard of guys building a box all the way around leaving the back open and putting a fan in for cooling. Don't really know what they made it out of though.
Maybe try to epoxy coat the plywood before paint on your setup. I work at a wooden boat shop and we coat every inch of the boats in epoxy before paint.

How big of a difference does that make. Gonna do something on mine too.

I wouldn't say plywood is cheap...a sheet of 5/8 pressure treated plywood is like $30. But it is a less expensive option then going with a commercial noise deflector.

I use a peice of 3/4" plywood with bedliner on it to waterproof that has a hinge a the bottom so it can swing up in front of the generator and has bolts that are attached to generator to attach to plwood to hold up, but my generator is also on a raised platform above the motor in the back to get it out of the way.

You have any pictures of your raised generator platform? Planning on doing that with mine. Will open up a lot of room and should be a lot quieter than having it siting in the bottom of the boat.
