Headset is a good one.Maybe being solo in the boat deletes the need to try to talk over the noise or gagging the passengers so I dont always need to scream what might be a couple of solutions worth trying?I was wondering if anyone has tried a spray foam or some type of isolating mounts for the motor

There's a few good posts on this from years past. Search noise. Lots of guys spray rubber on the mufflers/exhaust piping, inside the engine cover, on anything that isn't solid or can resonate. If it vibrates, it makes noise at some frequency...

alright thanks for the input.The off season lurking just around the corner will provide lots of time for tinkering around with it

I meant communications headsets, like Baja vehicles or offshore boats, but I see the humor with just using earplugs too.

I laid a rubber mat on the Swim grid. this seemed to help as much as anything. I also carpeted the inside hull and wrapped the mufflers.
