Well I made the plunge and cut out the center seat today. So I guess this project is under way. Has anyone used the roll on bedliner on the inside of the hull? If so will this quiet down the hull any at all? I looked for it at Lowes tonight but they don't carry it. Who does?

Thanks Dave

Walmart sells it. It will work, but it soaks up the hot sun like no ones business. I put it on all my pickups.

Instead of bedliner, you could put foam under the floor to help deaden the sound. I've seen a lot of guye use that pink insulation foam from Home Depot. Just a thought.

I wonder if this stuff is closed cell so that it don't absorb water? I had planned on cutting up the foam that was under the middle bench I cut out and spreading it out in the floor. I was wanting the spray or roll in bed liner for it's waterproofing effect also.

That is the type of foam I am using on my jon. I was concerned about it being closed cell so I weighted down a piece in a bucket of water for several days. No water absorption.

No direct experience, but from what I have read that pink foam is not gas resistant. It will turn into a pink goo under your floor if you spill some gas in the bilge and it get washed into contact with it.

Thanks phased. That's interesting Ouachita never thought about gas contact.

I have experienced the pink foam not being gas resistant, But in order for it to turn to goo it would have to be submerged it gas. I personal is currently using the pink foam. Honest is there ay foam ou there that is gas resistant. My experience and 2cents
