ENGINE SOUND INSULATION AND INSTALLING LED CABIN LIGHTS. Winter refit Vlog part 8.





So this week we show you how the engine sound insulation worked out and then move on to other projects.
Unfortunately for one reason or another we couldn’t finish half the things that we wanted to start, so settled on installing the new lighting…. well we started the process at least.

  2. If you can get to both sides your best bet is piano wire. Otherwise a very slow process of dig, slice scrape.

  4. Enjoyed the video. About to redo wiring in my boat but want to enjoy it for a minute before I start tearing it apart. The engine compartment looks great.

  5. Nice work on the engine insulation Ian. I would recommend a small access hatch so that you can get at your seacock a little easier and it would also serve as a fire port to allow fire extinguisher access in case of an engine fire. But not sure if that is required in the UK as it is here in Canada?

  6. Well you've done a lot more than I have.  I sawed the wine rack in half so I now have more room for books and less for wine – strange choice I know.  That has just about exhausted me, so I'm taking the rest of the weekend off.  I am very tempted to do the soundproofing after watching what you have done.  Trouble is I have a huge space behind the engine – I would probably need to box it off.

  7. Wound guitar string and two pieces of doweling, drill a hole in the doweling, run thru, around a time or two and back thru the hole, coupe of small screws into the holes to lock the wire, one person to port one on starboard and gently saw thru it

  8. Hi Ian
    I've suffered like you in the workshop with clutter, you will be amazed at how organised you can get it in an hour or less.
    I know it sounds like nagging but deep down you know this will pay dividends in the end.
    Be careful with wire twisting using a power tool, you might be looking for your finger in amongst the clutter.

    I've thoroughly enjoyed all of your videos and have learnt a lot from you and the family especially crossing the estuary and navigating
    Up the East Coast. I love the Hanse with all its instrumentation and auto helm

    Keep up the excellent videos, had a yacht myself so fully understand the problems particularly at this time of the year in the workshop or down the boatyard when damp, cold and lack of light don't actually help you

  10. Make a knife out of an old hacksaw blade sharpen the opposite side to the teeth on a grinder

  11. Very funny video and you have great persistence. I would have given up by mid morning and gone back to bed 🙂 Do you have an immobiliser on your bike? My Honda XL1000 had a similar problem which I thought was the switch, turned out to be an issue with the immobiliser! Also, your stuck down garage thingy… What about using a paint scraper and maybe some heat from a hair dryer
